Just by pure chance, I was looking at the index of Weyl for aventurine, I saw a note for Bismuth Oxide, in Ruby Glass pg.343. It wasn't much but Weyl stated lead, bismuth, and tin are all metallophilic, with tin being the most effective (hence its use in ruby glasses). Again, it wasn't much, just another piece in the puzzle.
