Blanchard Mine (Portalas-Blanchard Mine), Bingham, Hansonburg District, Socorro Co., New Mexico, USA
Thumbnail, 2.6 x 2.1 x 2.0 cm
The true holy grail of the famous Blanchard Mine is the highly sought-after Linarite. The world's greatest find of Linarite came from there in 1980, and it is been a target ever since. This Galena cube has a very rich coating of deep-blue Linarite on two of its faces, and one crystal is about .2-.3 cm in length. A lovely and choice thumbnail.
