mineralists:

Quartz with phantoms of Hematite coating an earlier phase of the crystal growth. There are also small clusters of Epidote on the points.

It’s been a crazy couple of months between work, school, and buying a house -  but I managed to get out to Park Hills, Missouri a few times to hunt druzy quartz with a lot of luck.
Hopefully as things continue to calm down I can spend more time on rocks!

Chalcanthite

CuSO4·5H2O  -  07.CB.20 (Strunz)
(from Poland, grown lab)

Here we have a richly-colored blue water-soluble cooper sulfate named Chalcanthite. That was grown in a laboratory in Poland. Chalcanthite is a secondary copper mineral and crystals do occur naturally in regions where there is a very dry climate and where there are copper deposits. ‘Natural’ occurring Chalcanthite crystals usually form as very small crystals or as bluish crusts of Chalcanthite or as solid ‘stalactites’ of chalcanthite. Under laboratory conditions Chalcanthite forms as surreal ‘electric’ blue colored crystals that are well-formed and sharp and very lustrous. This specimen is a very colorful and aesthetic display specimen. Another amazing feature of this mineral is that it is poisonous when we eat or aspire.
