C4-FYI
Smithsonite occurs across the globe, but facetable crystals are extremely rare. These gems can show a wide range range of rich colors but are too soft for most jewelry use. However, high dispersion makes properly faceted smithsonites truly magnificent collector’s pieces
|Etymology|After James Smithson, the British mineralogist who discovered that the zinc ore known as calamine was composed of two distinct minerals, later named hemimorphite and smithsonite.|
Commonly occurs as a secondary mineral in the oxidized zone of zinc-bearing deposits.|
