Smithsonite is a well known zinc spar mineral and as such is a zinc ore. When first found, it as simply identified as hemimorphite, as the two are almost always found together and were called calamine, hemimorphite is also a zinc ore and it wasn’t until 1832 that the minerals were both deemed to be two distinct ones when it was named in 1832 by François Sulpice Beudant in honor of English chemist and mineralogist James Smithson (c.1765–1829), whose bequest established the famous Smithsonian Institution and who first identified the mineral in 1802. These particular specimens are of smithsonite only and were found in Mexico, they exhibit a calming purple almost pink colouration and detail excellent botryoidal crystal form as expected. These samples are available in 1.5″ x 1.5″ sizes only and supplied in a small mag box with an information label.
