Chalcanthite

Crystals are easily grown synthetically from copper sulfate solutions. This can be done by dissolving a readily available chemical salt called copper sulfate, and then letting the water evaporate. This leaves behind a crystallized mass of Chalcanthite which can crystallize beautifully if grown properly.

Halite and Sylvit Locality:  Carlsbad Potash District, Eddy & Lea Counties, New Mexico, USA A superb specimen, certainly one of the very best recovered & among best of species, from the finds ca 2010-2012 at this large potash mine, found in a deep abandoned level of the mine. Joe Budd Photos.
