About ZinciteHide

Red, orange, yellow, white; rarely green
Sub-Vitreous, Resinous, Waxy, Greasy, Silky, Dull, Earthy
Specific Gravity:
5.64 - 5.68
Crystal System:
Named "red oxide of zinc" in 1810 by Archibald Bruce as a chemical name typical of then current mineral nomenclature practice. Renamed "zincite" in 1845 by Wilhelm Karl von Haidinger. Francis Alger called this mineral "sterlingite" in 1844, while Henry James Brooke and William Hallowes Miller named this mineral "spartalite" in 1852.
Isostructural with:
NOTE: synthetic zincite crystals are widespread on the mineral market (e.g.,
