Hemimorphite draws its name from the Greek for "half shape" because its crystals are terminated with dissimilar faces. It is often found in aggregate form with blue and white bands, or mixed with a dark matrix. Hemimorphite is a zinc silicate with a hardness of 5 on the Mohs scale.
This is my third order from GemSelect. I was 100% satisfied with my first two orders. Their photographs and product descriptions are very accurate and helpful. Selection is great. Shopping is very easy.
Gems were exactly the color I expected. Size was smaller than expected but my fault - didn't really consider measurement provided well enough. I'm just going to change the design that had been planned. Problem solved!
