Lovely blue Chalcanthite specimens, measuring around 20-30MM approximately.
These pieces are lab grown. Natural Chalcanthite does occur, but it is quite rare. It is a bright blue – green Copper mineral.
It is also worth noting that these specimens are very fragile. We wrap and pad each very carefully for postage.
These pieces are also water soluble, so please don’t let them get wet! Chalcanthite is a toxic mineral, but relatively safe to handle. It is toxic when dissolved into water, as it contains Copper – harmful to most aquatic life and most mammals too. Don’t lick it, and don’t dissolve it!
These crystal pieces can actually be made at home, but honestly I think it’d take quite a lot of practice to actually get any this nice.
