Caption: Bismuth, a silvery-white metal belonging to group V of the periodic table. The most important bismuth ores are bismuthinite or bismuth glance (bismuth sulphide) and bismite (bismuth oxide). Bismuth has extremely low thermal and electrical conductivities and is the most diamagnetic of all metals. It is used to make low- melting-point alloys and solders, and in casting alloys, which expand on solidification giving clear replication of intricate features. Although described by Basil Valentine in the fifteenth century, bismuth was not recognised as an element until its characteristics were pubished by C. Geoffroy and T. Bergman in 1753. It has the chemical symbol Bi.
