An example of the element Bismuth

Sample Image
Bismuth High purity shot
High purity shot.
These look a lot like they were dropped into water while molten. I'm not sure why very high purity bismuth would be supplied in this form, but I guess it's convenient for measuring out bits at a time. This sample was donated by Dave Roberts of DePauw University, who I got to know while I was installing the beautiful periodic table display that now graces their Julian Science Center. Dave found a bunch of surplus elements in their chemical storeroom, and naturally Max Whitby and I graciously offered to take them off his hands.
