Thanks for reading that and fixing the image links Casio.

Can you tell us a bit more about the piece. Where you got it etc.

LOL....The blue did make it extra beautiful. :D

I can't make out the crystal habit of your unknown. Clearer pics would be useful.
Without that:
My next suggestions would be to put a drop of muratic acid on a white xl on the underside and see if it effervesces.
Or, do a hardness test on one of the xls with a very small pen knife.

Report on the results.
