Blue Hemimorphite

Hemimorphite is a stone known to heal the emotional body, enhance one's communication abilities, and assist in cleansing and balancing one's aura. This stone brings positive vibrations full of joy, happiness, and uplifting energy. A common belief in ancient times was Hemimorphite’s ability to ward off poisoning, negativity, hatred, and malice.

History and Lore

This mineral was first recorded back in 1853 by a man named A. Kenngott, and was named after the crystal morphology of symmetry. Hemimorphite is believed to have been around since the 18th century and was actually referred to as “Electric Calamine”. The countries of Algeria, Mexico, Greece, Italy, and Namibia offer the best specimens for metaphysical use.

The most unusual thing about hemimorphite is shown in its own name. 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 rather blunt, dominated by a pedion (a single face), while the other is pointed and pyramidal. It is so unusual a behavior in crystal formation that its discoverers highlighted it.

Composition and Formation

Hemimorphite is a hydrous zinc silicate that produces fan-shaped tabular crystals and can take on botryoidal forms. Other times it’s seen as a ”coating” on another rock. When this happens it can be very bubbly and cover a majority of the rock. The color of Hemimorphite most commonly seen is a beautiful blue, to light blue color. It also appears as green, white, yellow, brown, grey, and even colorless.

Cleansing and Charging

There are many easy ways to cleanse and charge stones that have no way of damaging the stone like selenite, incense or sage smoke, burying in the earth, and moonlight. If you want to cleanse your stones in the sun, salt, or water you need to make sure its safe for the crystal to do so. For water, a general rule is if your stone is under 7 oh Moh’s hardness scale then it shouldn’t be in water. Hemimorphite grades 4.5-5 so water may not be your best choice, at least not too be soaking in water. Sunlight is always a beneficial one as long as its not for a prolonged time, it can cause brittleness and color damage to your crystals.
