A hard brittle, metallic element that is grayish-white with a tinge of red used in making alloys of low melting point. Although mentioned in alchemical texts, it is uncertain what role Bismuth played in alchemical processes.

Going north on US550,just before mm174 and .035m south of the Colorado border, there is a Shell/Giant service station. On the south side of the station's pavement is a dirt road paralleling the fence line/utility poles. The letterbox is on the west side of the first utility pole west of US550 under a metal bit.
