Take Bismuth for example. When you studied the periodic table of elements in high school, chances are Bismuth is one that you skipped over. However, you’re probably second guessing that decision now because it’s pretty incredible. The chemical element was assigned the symbol ‘Bi’ and the atomic number 93. Chemically, BIsmuth resembles arsenic or antimony and it’s 85 percent as dense as lead. It’s known for its whimsical rainbow hue, however, did you know that it actually has almost no color at all? Bismuth is actually a silvery white in its original form but takes on its rainbow tinge through oxidation.
As for Bismuth’s uses, it’s used in a wide variety of products such as cosmetics and even medicines. The substance can be found in cosmetics like the paint in eye shadows, hair sprays and nail polishes. It’s said to have been used for cosmetics as far back as Ancient Egypt.
