Bismuth, Wolfram Camp, Queensland, Australia

The Wolfram Camp, Australia is famous for native bismuth, which often occurred between enmeshed quartz crystals in the tungsten, molybdenum veins. Here are some solid samples of native bismuth, most showing quartz crystal imprints, bright cleavages or some with bismuthinite crystals embedded in them.

  • Looks like a crystal but it isn't! This bismuth formed largely between two parallel quartz crystals and the imprints of the quartz stria are clearly visible on the specimen. cleavages on a couple of the smaller sides. A very dense, interestingly shaped specimen from this classic locality.

  • This fragment of native bismuth shows "faces" that are mostly imprints of larger quartz crystal faces. Some of these faces have veneers of thin, radiating crystals of bismuthinite. One end of the piece looks very much like arsenopyrite. Interesting!
