(4 customer reviews)


SKU: 1592262050 Category:

The Bismuth Crystal Puzzle is a one-of-a-kind jigsaw puzzle inspired by the remarkable geometric patterns found in bismuth crystals. Each puzzle is uniquely generated through a computer simulation, mirroring the natural variations in shape and design. Pick a color way and you will receive a one-of-a-kind design made just for you (we show three puzzles to give a sense of the variations possible).

Puzzle artwork

The puzzle artwork is inspired by the distinctive structures created by bismuth’s “hopper growth.” Imagine a set of miniature, interconnected staircases or terraces, each stacked upon the other, creating a surreal, layered landscape. The images are grown in a simulation we created inspired by bismuth and are available in five vibrant color schemes.

Puzzle Cut style – Matrix

These puzzles have a geometric cut mirroring the puzzle’s crystalline nature. Become enmeshed in the matrix cut! The puzzle pieces explore a nonuniform grid, revealing an intriguing network.

each puzzle is about 9 x 9 inches

contains about 157 pieces

Since 2011, Nervous System has been crafting plywood puzzles that combine the artistry of classic jigsaws with the possibilities of new technology. We use custom software inspired by natural patterns to grow the intertwining shapes of the puzzle pieces. The organic forms are cut from plywood by a laser, resulting in a uniquely challenging puzzle crafted from premium materials. Each puzzle is made by us at our solar-powered studio in the Catskill Mountains.

    Gorgeous earrings! I love how light they are and the hooks don’t poke into my neck. Comfortable to wear and the organic designs are so beautiful. Quick shipping and packed well! This is a replacement as I lost one earring (user error – they come with rubber backers). My husband gave them to me as a gift years ago and I love them so much I needed to replace the earring I lost. Thank you!

    We love Nervous System puzzles! Shipped fast, beautiful puzzle. A little easier than some of the others due to the unique design with lots of edge pieces.

    There was a mixup with the shipping but the shop was super quick to respond and easy to work with to get it sorted out. The puzzle is gorgeous and was a really cool present.
