Super-rare, authentic, natural Chalcanthite specimen. Also known as "copper flower." This specimen measures 1-5/8" by 1-1/3" by 1-1/6".
Chalcanthite disintegrates in moisture or water. It usually forms from the oxidation of copper sulfide minerals in dry caves in very dry regions. If from the ceiling, it grows downward into a stalactite. If on the cave wall, it forms a in little round balls like a bunch of grapes known as botryoidal.
Needless to say, but I am saying it: keep your Chalcanthite dry.
Chalcanthite is all about love and passion combined.
