Fahlunite is a rare magnesium iron silicate, which on this specimen is a replacement pseudomorph of iolite.  The sharp crystal, which is an attractive steel blue color, is set in a matrix of feldspar and smoky quartz.  I collected this piece myself in the early 1990s from a remote locality on Timm's Hill. Confirmed by a listing on Mindat.com.
