The chemical formula of mineral Veszelyite is indicated by (Cu, Zn)3PO4(OH)3 – 2H2O or Hydrated Copper Zinc Phosphate Hydroxide. Veszelyite is actually a Phosphate mineral. It is most commonly used as mineral specimen and can be also found showing nice and interesting appearance when viewed under polarizing light microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. Veszelyite is actually a rare, but beautiful copper and zinc phosphate mineral that can be seen more clearly visible when specimens are closely examined with the aid of polarized microscopes for mineralogists. most often, Veszelyite specimens command a fairly lofty prices for even diminutive piece, which is a direct testament to rarity and attractiveness of the mineral. Mineral Veszelyite is usually found exhibiting its nice emerald green to green blue color and high luster which produces a good colorful sparkle that appear more fascinating and more wonderful when viewed with the aid of petrographic polarizing light microscope used in optical mineralogy. Crystals of mineral Veszelyite are often randomly and individually attached on specimens much like green sprinkles that are spread on an ice cream cone. Veszelyite is truly a nice, very interesting and fun to collect mineral.

 

            Mineral Veszelyite is most commonly found showing emerald-green, green, blue or most commonly green-blue that can be more fascinating when specimen is viewed with the aid of petrographic polarizing light microscopes used in the field of optical mineralogy. Mineral Veszelyite is also usually found showing vitreous luster when viewed in reflected light of polarized microscopes. Most crystals of mineral Veszelyite are found transparent to translucent in appearance. Veszelyite is also known to crystallize in the monoclinic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, the monoclinic system of crystal formation comprises crystals having three axes of unequal lengths. Two of which are usually found in a position that is oblique or not perpendicular to one another. However, both of which are commonly found perpendicular to the third axis. The crystal habit of mineral Veszelyite as described in the field of optical mineralogy usually include slender prismatic, nearly wedge shaped crystals and also granular aggregates that could be more clearly exhibited when specimen is evaluated with the aid of petrographic polarizing microscope. The hardness measure of mineral Veszelyite when it is evaluated using the Mohs scale method is usually ranging from 3.5 to 4. Veszelyite is also most commonly found leaving a green to greenish blue streak when specimen sample is rubbed on a white porcelain streak plate. The specific gravity measure of the mineral Veszelyite is approximately 3.4 grams per cubic centimeters, which is above average for translucent minerals. Mineral Veszelyite is most commonly found associated with quartz and various other copper minerals and zinc secondary minerals. The best field indicators of mineral Veszelyite usually include color, crystal habit and locality. Veszelyite has limited occurrence at Kipushi, Shaba, Republic of Congo as well as Romania, Zambia and some areas in USA.
