Smithsonite is a zinc carbonate mineral with a hardness of 5. Its crystal system can be rhombohedral or hexagonal, and it can occur in botryoidal, massive, granular or stalactic habits. It rarely forms crystals. It is often found in the upper oxidized zones of zinc deposits, frequently as an alteration product of Sphalerite. Smithsonite occurs in association with minerals such as Cerussite, Malachite and Hemimorphite. Smithsonite’s color can be blue, pink, purple, green, yellow, white, gray or brown. Deposits of Smithsonite have been found in Greece, Mexico, Africa, Spain and the USA.
