Bismuth nitrate is obtained from metallic bismuth and is soluble in acids but insoluble in water. Impurities are arsenic, lead and silver carbonates.

It gives a pearly luster to glazes and glasses, especially in reduction firing (light reduction). It is an ingredient in luster colors. It is a very very strong flux. Bismuth oxide contains 100% of the oxide while this is only 75%.
