Or could this be a type of quartz? I must apologise about the pictures. The crystal is perfect ‘robin egg’ blue and quartz like? What could it be?

I’d appreciate your help enormously, as always ~ thank you in advance!

I'm no expert, but my guess would definitely be blue chalcedony, which is a microcrystalline variety of quartz.

If not, maybe angelite

I agree, either of the above.. the microcrystalline may feel colder than the angelite in cool conditions...

Oooo! Very pretty! My guess would be blue chalcedony as well.

In order to be 100% sure I would post more detailed images. In any case it cannot be fluorite.

I definitely do not think this is fluorite.

I generally agree; this appears to be chalcedony.
