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.

  • Classic Wolfram Camp association. A piece of native bismuth bounded by quartz crystal imprints and cleavage faces. One end has a rich endowment of radiating bismuth crystal cleavages.

  • 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!

  • A large piece of native bismuth from one of the most famous localities in the world for this mineral. It is mostly native bismuth with a little quartz embedded in it. The quartz fragments are actually piece of quartz crystal with the rest of the exterior marked by the impressions of other quartz crystals that were once in contact with it. In other words the quartz crystals formed and the bismuth crystallized in between and on the quartz crystals. R

  • A very large chunk of solid native bismuth bearing the imprints of many quartz crystals prism and termination faces. It shows the typical grey-metallic colour and lustre of the external facets of a specimen from this famous locality. In places, you can see flashes of brilliant bismuth cleavage, especially on one side. Old, unknown catalogue number affixed to it. Dense! Wow! We do NOT see them like this very often! r

  • A splendid example of native bismuth that has been contacted on all sides by quartz crystals, with imprints of those quartz crystals in the bismuth as witness. Very dense! Really great looking specimen! r

  • A wonderful specimen of native bismuth that can look, at first glance, like a large crystal of native bismuth. Upon closer examination, though, the "faces" are merely sharp impressions of quartz crystals that the bismuth formed against. A little wolframite present, as well! Looks great! r
