This listing is for 1 Natural CARIBBEAN BLUE HEMIMORPHITE Square bead or pendant. It is drilled through the center. This listing is for the exact stone shown in the photo.

Hemimorphite is found in a variety of colors including blue-green, green, white, colorless, brown and yellow. Discovered in 1853, Hemimorphite was originally named 'Calamine'. However, as the name had already been used for another mineral, it was renamed Hemimorphite after its hemimorphic crystal structure. 'Hemi' means 'Half', while 'Morph' means 'Shape'. Hemimorphic crystals produce a different termination at each end of the crystal; thus the term hemimorphic or half shape. Other minerals with hemimorphic crystal structure are Tourmaline, Greenockite, Wurzite and Zincite. However, none of these show the complete structure as found in Hemimorphite.

Hemimorphite reminds me of clear blue skies with virginal white clouds softening the view but lending purity and new hope. The stone has an electrical charge induced by changes in temperature or pressure. The phenomena is known as piezoelectricity where heated crystals will develop positive and negative charges at opposite ends of the crystal. Truly amazing!

Hemimorphite gifts us with the feeling that we are part of all that is and that it is a part of us!

Hemimorphite is a stone for an evolved sense of self. It improves self-confidence, self esteem, and self- respect, but discourages egocentric behavior. It helps one realize one's own role in creating a satisfying life. Hemimorphite calms negative reactions, and helps one to understand what provokes them in order to avoid them in the future. It can help one in the process of transformation to evolve to one's fullest ability.
