Answer:

Crystallization?

Explanation:

So make a saturated solution of #CuSO_4(aq)#, and slowly cool it. You should be able to grow huge, macroscopic crystals of #CuSO_4*5H_2O#. Alternatively, layer a concentrated solution of #CuSO_4*5H_2O(aq)# with ethyl alcohol. You will be able to get beautiful, blue-coloured bricks out.
