Hemimorphites are formed by water and the oxidation process of rocks and minerals exposed on the Earth's surface.
The name tells us of the crystal formation as the ends of the crystals vary in shape and form - half-changed or half-formed. This uneven development also makes this stone very rare & is responsible for Hemimorphite's name, from the Greek hemi, meaning "half" and morph, meaning shape.
Prior to 1803, Hemimorphite and Smithsonite were thought to be the same mineral called Calamine. In 1803 James Smithson, a British mineralogist, discovered that these were two distinct zinc mineral species that closely resembled each other.
Hemimorphite can be used to decrease self-centeredness & to encourage the state of egoless-ness while facilitating the staying power of the self. It allows one to take responsibility for happiness or unhappiness, for creating one’s personal reality, and for both recognizing and utilizing the powers of self-concept.
This stone helps relieve feelings of hostility and anger by assisting in smoothing emotional irritations while reinforcing ones understanding of the origin of these provocations or aggravations.
Hemimorphite is said to bring one luck, a discerning mind, & a charming manner. It provides symmetry between the physical plane and other planes of existence and allows one to grow simultaneously on all planes. This stone assists one in self-transformation, personal evolution, and maintaining &/or regaining health.

Fluorite is calcium fluoride in mineral form, belonging to the halide group of minerals. It is also known as “fluorspar,” especially in industrial or chemical settings. It has ornamental uses, but it has also been used for smelting (as a flux), in the manufacture of hydrofluoric acid, and in the production of glasses, enamels, telescopes, microscopes and fluorite optics. Fluorite comes in a range of brilliant colors and exhibits an isometric crystal system, a Moh's scale hardness of 4, a brittle tenacity, and is transparent to translucent.

It is widely occurring and commonly found in large deposits. Noteworthy localities include Germany, China, Austria, Norway, Mexico, Austria, Switzerland, and Canada, but it is found in other places as well.
On a metaphysical level, fluorite stabilizes and cleanses the aura of those who keep it near or wear it.
