Bismuth is a native element. Peru is one of the world's major sources. Native crystals are extremely rare. These crystals are grown in our laboratory. Scarce as silver, heavier than lead, one cubic foot of bismuth would weigh over 600 lbs. It is classified as a semi-precious semi-metal. Non-toxic to humans, bismuth is used in both medicine and cosmetics. Applications in inks, paints, free-machining steels and fire sprinklers are other uses.
