Smithsonite is one of two zinc-containing minerals discovered by the British chemist and mineralogist James Smithson in 1803. Or, more precisely, Smithson discovered that a zinc-containing mineral known by the name calamine in the 18th century was in fact two separate minerals -- a zinc carbonate and zinc silicate. The zinc carbonate was named hemimorphite and the zinc silicate was named smithsonite in Smithson's honor.
I love Gem Select!! I have ordered MANY items from them and I have been pleasantly suprised by every single one! And the shipping is WAY faster than I ever expect. Their products are both highest quality and best price. I will continue to regularly order from them...forever!
I appreciate the how GemSelect does business, and will continue to recommend it to other jewelry makers. The photographs of the stones are excellent, making selection easy. The matched spinels from my last order were extremely good and the violet sapphire from my most recent is very nice. All were shipped astoundingly quickly. The customer service is also very prompt and professional.
I have had no issues with GemSelect. My postal service 'lost' my previous shipment. I appreciated that Gem
Select worked with me (I was on an extended business trip and wouldn't have been able to accept the shipment) and refunded my purchase promptly. Thumbs up.
