Caledonite is a blue green mineral which was discovered in Caledonia, now known as Scotland.
Caledonite was given its name in 1932 due to its discovery in Lanarkshire, Scotland, which was once known as Caledonia in ancient times. This orthorhombic mineral is blue or green in color, due to its copper content, and contains anions of carbonates and sulfates. Although the crystals are usually small, they make very stunning micro mounted specimens.
