An area of bismuth sits proudly near the apex of the quartz, this is from Torrington, NSW. The quartz has a very decent amount of bismuth on and thru it. The really nice thing about this specimen, besides being one of the few native elements that crystallize , is that the bismuth has the wonderful bronzish pink color of fresh bismuth, its very uncommon that this does not oxidize to a less bright and pretty color reasonable quickly after mining. Ex the late Keith Greggson collection, Torrington. Im sorry but this specimen is not easy to photograph, enough to say the bismuth flashes.
