    I fucking love lab grown bismuth crystals.

    The first two are crystals of elemental bismuth (the active ingredient in Pepto Bismol). The third looks like cinnabar, a compound of mercury and sulfur.

    Ti crystals apparently are iridescent like that, but they have a more ordinary shape when they crystallize (like the shape of quartz crystals). Bi crystals are the only ones with this distinct shape, IIRC.
