Crystal Description

Chalcanthite is a secondary copper mineral formed through the oxidation of copper sulphides. Chalcanthite exists only in arid regions which are protected from moisture.

Chalcanthite specimens must be kept away from water and moist conditions, as water causes them to crumble or dissolve. Most specimens are very fragile, and much care should be taken when handling them. Chalcanthite is poisonous.

Natural Chalcanthite crystals are extremely rare in nature. Well shaped crystals are easily grown synthetically from copper sulphate solutions and appear too perfect to be natural (so be aware).
