We find Cu2(AsO4)(OH)·3H2O (euchroite) is a model compound for the frustrated delta chain which is composed of corner-shairng triangles. Magnetic susceptibility, specific heat, high field magnetization and 1H-NMR measurements are carried out using natural mineral samples of euchroite to study magnetic properties. Large spin gap of about 100 K are shown to be presented in this compound.
