Willemite Dragon (UV)
Carved from Willemite from the Franklin Mining District, Sussex, NJ, USA
Willemite was given its name by a man named Serve-Dieu Abailard Levy who was granted professorship at the University of Liege by King William I (1772 – 1843) of the Netherlands. Levy had discovered the new zinc silicate and in appreciation of the professorship he received, named it after King William I.
