For sale is a bismuth on quartz from Wolfram Camp, Qld. Featuring a good coverage of bright bismuth, on contrasting quartz matrix. Bismuth on matrix is somewhat more uncommon to most native bismuch specimen, which are usually have no matrix. This mine has been closed for more than twenty years. This specimen came out of a very old collection, from the beginning of last century, that was acquired by Phil Perkins, I obtained it from Phil. I find native elements that crystalize fascinating. An interesting thing about bismuth, is it is the only metal that contracts when heated! Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars. A very reasonable priced specimen of this native element.
