Fluorescent Hydrozincite, AKA Hydrozinc, Zinconise, Hydrozinkiet
Weight: 41 Grams
Locality: Hubei China
Fluorescence captured at 365nm.
Hydrozincite is usually encountered in the form of solid, natural, porous to dense accumulations and coatings composed of tiny to nearly imperceptible crystals. Its color typically ranges from white to gray, but it can take on various tints due to impurities, with shades of yellow, brown, and pink being the most common. This mineral is commonly a byproduct of the alteration of sphalerite, as well as hemimorphite and smithsonite. It might be mistaken for the visually similar zinc carbonate-sulfate known as brianyoungite, and the exceptionally scarce zinc carbonate called sclarite.
