Element 83

Bismuth - element 83
Purchased at the local mineral and Gemstones
exhibition. Bismuth forms intricate square crystals
as it cools from the melt. Bismuth also expands 3% as it
solidifies and is considered the most radioactive stable
element in the universe. This sample is about 20mm across.

Oh, fascinating, and I agree with Bob, it looks like a work of art. Beautifully detailed capture, and I like the dark reflection as well. V.
