They were assumed to be the same mineral and both were classed under the same name of calamine. Some specimens show strong green fluorescence in shortwave UV light and weak light pink fluorescence in longwave UV.

Hemimorphite assists with knowing one’s true self.  It balances issues the ego, decreasing self-centeredness, while encouraging one to take responsibility for oneself and to not take everything personally.  This supports practicality and relieves hostility and anger.  This crystal is especially good for healers.

Mottramite supports the processes of personal transformation, in particular, understanding the level of effort needed (“walk don’t run”) so that one’s energy is not depleted.
