Crystal Spotlight: Rainbow Titanium Bismuth

The beautiful crystal structures that are so amazing to look at may not be the natural form of Bismuth, but that doesn’t mean that they have no metaphysical value!Rainbow Titanium Bismuth is a lab grown “crystal”. Genuine Bismuth is exceptionally boring to look at since it rarely forms in such beautiful structures as it’s lab grown counterparts, and never with such remarkable color.  ‚Äč

These beautiful crystalline structures are made by super cooling liquid bismuth and exposing it to the air. The super cooled metal crystalizes into the spectacular forms you see all over the place and the oxygen exposure causes the color variances. 
Bismuth itself is very brittle. It’s an uncommon mineral and usually forms in lumps and masses instead of crystals. It sits at number 83 on the periodic table and can contain traces of arsenic, antimony and sulfur. When freshly broken, you might see a pinkish hue but it won’t last long! Bismuth tarnishes quickly to a dark grey. 

So where’s the metaphysical value if it’s “fake”? Well… it’s not actually fake, it’s just re-structured in a lab environment. Rainbow Titanium Bismuth is made out of real Bismuth. 

Bismuth is used to relieve feelings of isolation or loneliness. Both spiritually and emotionally. Rainbow Bismuth can be used for visualizations and focus. It connects to all chakras and can be used as an aid in meditations.  

So even though Rainbow Titanium Bismuth is not a naturally occurring physical state of Bismuth, it is still purposeful, and a lot of fun to look at and to hold. The texture is just… fascinating. 

I like to use my Rainbow bismuth in my crystal grids and it hangs out on top of a flat piece of amethyst right along side my other shelf crystals. I’m happy to make it part of the family, and I hope you will do the same!
