Linarite with Fluorite
Blanchard Mine, Bingham, Hansonburg District, Socorro County
New Mexico, United States
7.7 x 3.2 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
new year 2021

A rich electric blue Linarite that has grown on top of several green-blue Fluorite crystals. From the Blanchard Mine which was a fine source of both minerals though they were not often together. The Fluorites reach to 1 CM and some are almost fully encrusted while others are clearly exposed. Close exam shows the slender habit Linarites on the Fluorite are translucent and glow brightly when backlit. Fine color and a USA classic locale, collected in 1977 by Les Hitchings.
