WHAT DOES ZINCITE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

zincite

Zincite

Zincite is the mineral form of zinc oxide. Its crystal form is rare in nature; a notable exception to this is at the Franklin and Sterling Hill Mines in New Jersey, an area also famed for its many fluorescent minerals. It has a hexagonal crystal structure and a color that depends on the presence of impurities. The zincite found at Franklin Furnace is red-colored and associated with willemite and franklinite. Zincite crystals can be grown artificially, and synthetic zincite crystals are available as a by-product of zinc smelting. Synthetic crystals can be colorless or can range in color from dark red, orange, or yellow to light green. Synthetic zincite crystals Both natural and synthetic zincite crystals are significant for their early use as semiconductor crystal detectors in the early development of crystal radios before the advent of vacuum tubes. As an early radio detector it was used in conjunction with another mineral, galena, and this combination was known as the cat's-whisker detector.
