Zincite is the rare mineral form of zinc oxide. It occurs naturally as grain-sized crystals in only one place – New Jersey. However, larger specimens of this unique, glittering mineral are also found in smoke stacks in a zinc smelting facility in Poland. Zincite occasionally forms when incidental breaks in the smelter cause temperature and air pressure to quickly change, creating ideal conditions for spontaneous crystal growth. Zincite is also significant for its use in early crystal radios. Metaphysically, Zincite
is a powerful stone of manifestation, stimulating the imagination and allowing one to realize their creative visions. Zincite is a highly charged crystal that energizes the wearer, removing energy blockages and putting one in touch with personal strength.
