A method of etching high purity zinc single crystals to reveal various etch figures on {1010} planes is presented in the preceding paper. The procedure involves the introduction of mercury to the crystal surface prior to a chemical polish with dichromic acid. The mercury was found to be concentrated at the etch figures. This paper presents the results of several experiments which support the conclusion that there exists a one-to-one correspondence between etch figures and dislocations. Some observations of slip on (0001) basal planes and {1212} pyramidal planes, and of twinning in zinc are also presented.
