- Zinc sulfide, ZnS, occurs in
nature as the mineral sphalerite and may
be prepared by treating solutions of zinc salts with hydrogen sulfide.
Zinc sulfide is a white- to
yellow-colored powder or crystal

- Sphalerite ((Zn,Fe)S) is a
mineral and is the major content of ore of zinc. It consists largely of
zinc sulfide in
crystalline form but almost always contains variable iron.
- Zinc Sulfide is produced in the
Labs by mixing an amount of zinc and sulfur
and then igniting it. The result (after cooling) is zinc sulfide
- Zinc sulfide is used to supply
zinc in animal feeds, fertilizers, and agricultural sprays; in making
lithopone; in coagulation baths for rayon; in electrolyte for zinc
plating; as a mordant in dyeing; as a preservative for skins and
leather; and in medicine as an astringent and emetic.
- Lithopone and other pigments and
preparations are based on zinc sulfide.
