Smithsonite, which is a zinc carbonate mineral that is usually found in a botryoidal (grape-like) or globular form, is named after the founder of the Smithsonian Institute, James Smithson. It occurs in a wide variety of colors, from colorless to various hues of blue, green, purple, yellow or white, and has an unusually waxy luster. It is commonly associated with other minerals such as cerrusite, limonite, dolomite, calcite, and so on and is used as a minor ore of zinc. Its distinctive crystal structure, good cleavage, and characteristic fracture lines make it easy to distinguish from other similar minerals such as hemimorphite and prehnite.
