Hemimorphite Hemimorphite is the commonly known sorosilicates which forms in oxidized zinc deposits and always occurs in clusters of radiating, acicular crystals. Originally, it was named Calamine, but since calamine is used for some other mineral, the word hemimorphit is widely in use. 'Hemi' means half and 'morph' means shape.

Hemimorphite is in the form of bladed crystal, the botryoidal form is very common. The crystals are generally elongated and flat. When heated, the stone readily becomes frosted. When hot, the coating is yellow but after cooling it turns white. It even fluoresces a bright orange in long-wave ultraviolet and white in short-wave ultraviolet.

Some of the best hemimorphite are found in Leadville, Colorado, Elkhorn and Montana in the United States. It is also found in Mapimi, Durango and Santa, Eulalia, Mexico. Few other nice specimens of the stone are also found in New Mexico and New Jersey.

It is a wide believe of Hemimorphite being a help for one to attain a positive self-image including self-esteem and self-respect. It also assists in the personal growth of a person on all levels. The stone brings joy and creativity. For healing, it is an excellent stone. It relieves pain, cures ulcers, blood diseases and cellular disease or disorder. Sometimes it is also used as protection stone from malice and poisoning.
