Bismuth is a semimetal element well known for its crystal habits. Most specimens (like the one above) are of Bismuth that were crystallized in a lab and such forms aren’t really seen in nature. Natural bismuth has the same metallic luster, but not with the fluctuation of different colours, and it is often in clumps rather than crystals. Bismuth is most notably used in bright pink OTC antacids (ie: Pepto Bismol).

Short Tailed Ceratosoma | Ceratosoma brevicaudatum

"Most species of Ceratosoma have a long recurved dorsal ‘horn’ which acts as a defensive lure attracting potential predators to the part of the animal which contains most of the distasteful chemicals stored from their food. Although this species, as its name suggests, has a very short ‘tail’ it is conspicuously marked, especially in juveniles. This colour ‘target’ probably also attracts potential predators to the most distasteful part of the animal.”  -

BLACK HOLE

Paint in motion by Fabian Oefner

"Black Hole" is a series of images, which shows paint modeled by centripetal force. The setup is very simple: Various shades of acrylic paint are dripped onto a metallic rod, which is connected to a drill. When switched on, the paint starts to move away from the rod, creating these amazing looking structures.
