Bismuth History Mythology Information: Bismuth is one of our basic elements and is number 83 on the periodic table.  Up until 1763 it was thought to be a form of lead however the French chemist Claude Geoffroy the Younger established due to stability and slow rate of decay that it was a separate element.  Bismuth has a number of commercial uses and is most famous for its use as an ingredient in stomach medication like Pepto-Bismol.  It is also a poor heat conductor and is often added to low-melting alloys and used in sprinkler systems.

Bismuth is a brittle metal with a crystalline structure and is commonly and easily grown or reformed in a Lab.  The Lab-grown specimens have the same makeup as the natural ones and they are often in the wonderful crystalline structures when formed.
