Bismuth is a metal over eight times rarer than silver, element #83 on the Periodic Table (sitting between lead and plutonium). Similar to a soap bubble, bismuth's oxide layer is a thin-enough diameter to refract white light into colours, appearing in the same order as an oil-on-water rainbow; this term is called "thin-film interference." It is diomagnetic (it repels magnetic fields) and a super-conductor at low temperatures. As bismuth naturally expands upon cooling, all casts are hollow so as to prevent cracking and expose the crystal structure.

All items by The Bismuth Smith are hand-casted and -polished to a briliant shine. The Bismuth Smith takes pride in having a large variety of products, making finding the perfect gift easy.
