This is a colorful crystal of blue fluorite with multiple layers of purple and blue phantoms. It comes from the old classic Denton Mine in southern Illinois. The see-through clear cubic crystals are extremely sharp, and have a bright, flashy luster.  The color is rich and intense, and the crystals are undamaged.  This is a good example-and a very attractive specimen-of the material that was found in this mine up until it closed in the early 90s.
