Chalcanthite is a delicate mineral admired and collected because of its intense blue color. It is a water-soluble sulfate that forms in mine walls in copper deposits. Chalcanthite has several alternative names, including blue stone, blue vitriol, and copper vitriol. The mineral is often found in arid regions because of its solubility. Its name comes from the Greek words “chalkos” and “anthos”, meaning copper flower.
These minerals are lab-grown in Michigan. Every crystal adopts its own unique form, making these objects one-of-a-kind, but the stunning nature-made electric blue is consistent throughout every piece. These scientific showpieces are hand-selected to bring a unique geological element to your home.
Note - Chalcanthite is a moderately toxic material, sometimes used as a pesticide and fungicide. It should be kept out of the reach of small children, and should be handled with care.
