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 superb example of this very collectable material.  The crystals are well-formed translucent cubes, with soft luster and intensely saturated color. There are a few crystals of white barite, too. This piece features full-face coverage and fluorite in a lovely shade of royal blue.
