smithsonite was identified with¬†hemimorphite¬†before it was realized that they were two different minerals. The two minerals are very similar in appearance and the term¬†calamine¬†has been used for both, leading to some confusion. The distinct mineral smithsonite was named in 1832 by¬†Fran√ßois Sulpice Beudant¬†in honor of¬†English¬†chemist¬†and¬†mineralogist¬†James Smithson¬†(c.1765‚Äď1829), who first identified the mineral in 1802.
