BISMUTH – WOLFRAM CAMP QLD.

$105.00

For sale is a bismuth specimen from Wolfram Camp, Nth Qld. A beautiful, metallic matt grey, crystallized,  mass of solid bismuth from the well-known Wolfram Camp. While there are some areas where the bismuth has formed among quartz crystals, see last pic.  There are other areas that show distinct crystallization. Bismuth as one of the few elements that crystalize on it own, is quite intriguing, and too me fascinating, another interesting thing about bismuth is that it is the ONLY metal that contracts when heated.

This specimen is one we obtained from an old stash, these specimen have not been available for since the 1980s, and there is no hope of any more being produced. Ex Phil Perkins collection. An overall impressive Australian bismuth with a large area of crystallization.  Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
