Bismuth has been known since ancient times and was often confused with tin and lead however it is an element in its own right, number 83 on the Periodic table. Naturally, occurring Bismuth is an iridescent silvery white crystalline, brittle metal and is very rare.It can transform with tinges of pink to red. It naturally occurs with an iridescent oxide tarnish that reflects a full spectrum of colours including blue, yellow and green, as well. Bismuth crystals are typically laboratory grown where Bismuth is melted and a rod is placed in the molten metal and pulled up slowly, which allows crystals to form as it cools. Traditionally rainbow Bismuth has been used to ease us through transitions, encouraging a calm acceptance of change and increasing our energy levels to be able to adapt and transform.
