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.
