Smithsonite is a lovely mineral that was named for the founder of the Smithsonian Institute.  The color is a lusterous lavender, layered colors of lavender and blue green Smithsonite. Usually this mineral is seen as more of a blue to gray color. This specimen is from Choix-Sinalloa Mexico. The vibration is very calming and pleasant. Smithsonite has been one of my favorites for some time now.  I feel it is emotional in nature and helps to build positive energy in relationships.  Use Smithsonite to provide comfort when making changes in your life.  New beginnings.
