Properties :

Sky blue crystal granular or power, can soluble in water and diluted acetic acid. The solution appears as weak acidity. It will be effloresces slowly in dry air, and its surface will become white powder substance. Copper Sulphate will lose four crystal water when heated to 110, and will be changed into white copper sulfate anhydrous which is easy to absorb water when the temperature is higher than 150°C.
