|Formerly world's largest crystal.|
This was at one time the largest known (to me at least) bismuth crystal, made by a guy whose goal in life is to make the world's largest bismuth crystal. Then I dropped it. ARGGGGHHH. Worse, I dropped before I even had a chance to photograph it, so the world will never know just how big it really was (which is about twice as big as it is now).
I chose this sample to represent its element in my Photographic Periodic Table Poster. The sample photograph includes text exactly as it appears in the poster, which you are encouraged to buy a copy of.
