Bismuth Stunning crystal
Stunning crystal.
I don't care what any mineral snobs say, man-made bismuth crystals are just about the most beautiful crystals in the world, and this is a good example of that. Huge, shiny, incredibly complex and mysterious, and actually rather quick to make once you have the temperature conditions worked out just so. This crystal probably grew in at most a few minutes. The maker has a nice website where he sells many very nice crystals.
