Bingham, New Mexico is the classic southwestern U.S. locality for blue fluorite, and this specimen from the 2013 diggings in the Glory Hole is a fine example of this very collectable material.  The crystals are sharp, gemmy cubes, with great luster and good gemminess.  This piece features good coverage on both sides of the matrix, and the fluorite is a lovely shade of blue. On one side there are many small thin barite crystals that are clear to white.
