Notability of apartment decoration, and another question[change source]

I'm reviewing this article for GA, and there are a couple questions I have:

Is the part about one person decorating their apartment with copper sulfate notable? It might be notable if it were a widespread phenomenon, but one person doing it does not seem to be notable enough.

In addition, "Copper(II) sulfate is found in the ground as chalcanthite. It is easily dissolved." This is gramatically ambiguous. Does "it" refer to copper sulfate or chalcanthite? Also, that section should explain more about chalcanthite and what it is/does. Kansan (talk) 20:07, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

 (change conflict) The only reason that I included it is because it was included in the enWP article. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 20:08, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Agree. Both copper sulfate and chalcanthite are easily dissolved. Chalcanthite can be seen as an impure form of copper sulfate as a mineral in the ground, while copper sulfate normally means the pure stuff sold in stores and labs. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 20:09, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
