DESCRIPTION

Here's a glittering top-quality specimen of HEMIMORPHITE - a drop-dead gorgeous group of TRANSPARENT CRYSTALS with nice VITREOUS LUSTER set on a reddish-brown limonite matrix . Hemimorphite derives its name from its character as 'hemimorphic" - that is, like this piece, it has DIFFERENT TERMINATIONS on the same specimen. This specimen was collected in MINA LA OJUELA, MAPIMI, DURANGO, MEXICO. This is another NEW FIND from TUCSON in February this year. I picked this specimen up from one of the big Mexican wholesale suppliers, who had purchased the entire lot from this extraordinary find. The crystals are arranged in showy clusters, which stand up nicely on the matrix, providing an excellent contrast. This is the best new find of hemimorphite in many years, and sets a new standard for this intriguing mineral.

Hemimorphite is one of the more common sorosilicates. Its most noteworthy characteristic is its polar or hemimorphic crystals from where it gets its name. The crystal structure produces a different termination at each end of the crystal. One termination, the "bottom" is rather blunt being dominated by a pedion face while the opposite end, the "top" is terminated by the point of a pyramid. The crystal structure contains tetrahedrons of ZnO3 OH, interlocked with Si2 O7 groups and water molecules. The zinc is at the center of the tetrahedron while the three oxygens, along with an OH group, are at the four points of the tetrahedron. These tetrahedrons are all aligned in the same direction with one face parallel to the pedion termination and the "top" of the tetrahedrons pointing toward the pyramidal termination.

Hemimorphite was originally named calamine but this name had been used for another mineral and hemimorphite was proposed and is now in wide spread use. The hemi means half while the morph means shape and thus hemimorphite is aptly named. Only a few other minerals show hemimorphic character such as tourmaline, but none show it as well as hemimorphite. Clusters of hemimorphite that show well shaped crystals do not always show the hemimorphic character. Because the crystals of a single specimen tend to grow outward with either the "top" or the "bottom" as the overall orientation for that specimen. In order to see the hemimorphic character either a doubly terminated specimen is necessary or two different clusters with different orientations will be needed.

Specimens of hemimorphite tend to be of two very different forms (seems like a trend with this mineral). One form produces very glassy, clear or white, thin, bladed crystals, often well formed showing many crystal faces. Many times these crystals are arranged in fan shaped aggregates. The other form produces a blue to blue-green botryoidal crust that resembles smithsonite or prehnite. Prehnite has a lower density and is usually greener and has different associations with other minerals. Smithsonite has a shimering luster that causes a play of light across the rounded surfaces and has a higher density that hemimorphite. Often hemimorphite will show rough crystal ridges or "cock's comb" structures over top of the basic botryoidal crust. For a collector both forms are a must in their mineral collections.


METAPHYSICS

People interested in metaphysics and CRYSTAL HEALING tell us that hemimorphite can be used to DECREASE SELF-CENTEREDNESS and to encourage the state of egoless-ness. It also allows one to take responsibility for HAPPINESS OR UNHAPPINESS, and for creating ones PERSONAL REALITY. It can further enhance ones self-esteem and provides for the manifestation of PRACTICALITY and SENSIBILITY.
