Crystals 101: White Hemimorphite

If you are already swimming in crystals, or just starting your crystal journey, you definitely want to add White Hemimorphite to your collection. It’s known for its ability to heal the emotional body, enhance communication, and cleanse your aura; but White Hemimorphite offers so much more, encouraging vibrations of joy, happiness, and positive energy as well. And, who couldn’t use more positive vibes in their life?

Hemimorphite gets its name from the Greek words hemi (“half”) and morph (“shape”) because each end of a hemimorphite crystal has a different shape. One end of each crystal is blunt, dominated by a single face, while the other is pointed and pyramidal, which is an unusual occurrence in crystal formations. Hemimorphite received its official name in 1853 from German mineralogist Gustav Adolph Kenngott.

Hemimorphite can be found in many areas of the world, around or near zinc deposits, yet very few yield gemstone quality. It can be difficult to cut which is why it’s an uncommon gemstone material, and is more typically used as a collector’s stone. Regions with significant deposits of Hemimorphite include Mexico, Zambia, Europe, and multiple locations within the United States. It can be colorless, white, green, yellow, pink, blueish green, or brown. In ancient times, it was reportedly used to counteract poison.
