(b) what would you do to restore the blue color?

When heating a crystal of CuSO4.5H2O, the crystal suffers a loss of H2O and leaves a grey colored powder. What might you do to restore the crystal> Place it in a closed vessel with water (in a separate container) and the dry CuSO4 will absorb the water (from the water vapor) it lost when heated and the blue color will return.
