The attractive blue color and sparkling crystals make chalcanthite a popular choice among rock hounds and collectors! These lab grown minerals are highly dissolvable in water so they must be kept dry.
Chalchanthite is one of our best sellers! It’s beautiful blue color comes from the reaction of sulfur and copper- though it is hard to find these lovely crystals in nature due to chalcanthite’s ready solubility in water. Typically this mineral is found in arid regions where copper deposits are exposed due to mining. The copper oxidizes and reacts with sulfate rich ground water and the chalcanthite crystals form as the water evaporates. All of our chalcanthite specimens are lab grown, allowing a highly affordable option that looks great in any collection.
