If you dry it out than it can be an indicator that shows is a liquid free from water. If the white (anhydrous CuSO4 turns to blue than the liquid contains some water) It is used to check distilled alcohol. Or you can make copper salts from it (hydroxide, chloride, carbonate, benzoate.....). Or you just throw it in fire and it colors the flames to green:-)
