Zinc Carbonate Chemical Formula

Zinc carbonate is also called as Smithsonite or Zinc spar. Its molecular formula is ZnCO3. It is a trigonal mineral, occurs in the weathering or oxidation zone of zinc-bearing ore deposits. It appear in earthy botryoidal texture and holds the Mohs of 4.5 and specific gravity of 4.4 to 4.5. It is a white crystalline solid or powder used in pharmaceuticals as feed additive in making other Zinc compounds.
