This is naturally forming? Where are they found?

This is a natural form it can take, but yhe conditions to make it dont occure in nature. You could make this with a lump of the metal and a pot on your stove

Bismuth likes to form these crystals as it cools, you can buy bismuth and make crystals yourself.

If you see it looking like this, it's very likely it's not natural. Bismuth just loves to cling to other minerals, so it's very rare to find it in it's pure form. Typically it's found with nickel and cobalt
