It was often assumed to be the same mineral and both were classed under the same name of calamine. In the second half of the 18th century it was discovered that there were two different minerals under the heading of calamine - a zinc carbonate and a zinc silicate which closely resemble each other. The silicate was the rarer of the two, and was named hemimorphite because of the hemimorph development of its crystals. Hemimorphite most commonly forms crystalline crusts and layers. It has a hardness of 4.5 to 5. The best quality comes from Mexico, Greece, Italy, Algeria and Namibia.

Barachiel the Archangel whose name means the ‘Lightning of God’ is one of the seven great Archangels, Eastern Orthodox tradition. In the Third Book of Enoch (also known as the ‘Revelations of Metatron’) he is described as one of the angelic princes, with a myriad of some 496,000 ministering angels attending him. He is counted as one of the ruling Seraphim. He is described in the Lesser Keys of Solomon as one of the chief angels of the first and fourth chora. He is regarded as the angel of lightning. Barachiel is sometimes shown holding a perfect white rose against the chest, or with rose petals scattered on the clothing, particularly the cloak. In Roman Catholicism, Barachiel is depicted holding a bread basket or as in the traditional oil painting I have, holding a basket of flowers. Barachiel’s responsibilities are as varied as the blessings for which the archangel is named, Barachiel is also the chief of the Guardian angels and it is written that Barachiel may be prayed to for all the benefits which the guardian angel is thought to confer if one is not praying to the guardian angel directly, but as an intercession. Self-questioning Exercise to Remove Emotional Blocks To understand your belief systems and past-programming, you need to question your motivation and values. This is a vital step on the path of self-knowledge, individuality, independence and emotional freedom.
What To Do
1. Make a list of your beliefs. Take your time with this, and see if you can identify the root of each belief or value. Are they really yours, or have you acquired them from your parents, teachers, peer group or social conditioning and the media?
2. Each belief may be seen as an emotional or energetic block, or ‘thought form’. Some of these thought forms may be negative, hindering your spiritual growth, blighting your emotional well-being, causing you unhappiness and blocking your physical abundance. Take the time to decide which if any do this.
3. Create a new list with two columns. Head one column ‘Past Programming’ and the other ‘New Programming’.
4. In the Past Programming column list the values and beliefs that no longer serve your highest good. The more specific you are about the ones you wish to release the better.
5. In the New Programming column list the new values you wish to bring into your life. Make sure these are worded in a positive way. Try phrases such as ‘judgement is replaced with acceptance’; ‘fear is replaced with love’; restriction is replaced with freedom’; and intolerance is replaced with tolerance’.
