No specimen available

The purplish/bluish fuzz that grows around the base of this mushroom made it particularly fascinating. Found it last year around 10,000 ft in deep coniferous forest. It took me months to try and figure out what it might be. I haven’t seen any other mushrooms that could be lookalikes as of yet.
