Welcome to our new bismuth specimen page!

Bismuth compounds account for about half the production of bismuth. They are used in cosmetics, pigments, and a few pharmaceuticals, notably, Pepto Bismo. Bismuth's unusual propensity to expand upon freezing is responsible for some of its uses, such as in casting of printing type. Bismuth has unusually low toxicity. Since it has a very low melting point, Bismuth's unusual propensity to expand upon freezing is responsible for some of its uses, such as in casting of printing type. Bismuth has unusually low it is one of the main ingredients in solder and automatic sprinkler triggers. As the toxicity of lead has become more apparent in recent years, there is an increasing use of bismuth alloys (presently about a third of bismuth production) as a replacement for lead. The brilliant colors come from either acid washing, or oxidation.For expanded view, description and secure order page, simply click the photo of your choice!
