Aurichalcite is often found as a delicate mass of blue-green feathery needles. Small specimens of this zinc-copper mineral are beautiful and highly collectable, handling should be avoided if possible to minimise the risk of damage. It may also be confused with Hemimorphite and other similar minerals.
