    Most likely azurite, an ore of copper.

    I agree that it is likely crystal azurite.

    If it turns out to not be crystal azurite, could it be a chunk of glass?

    It's not Azurite. Azurite would quickly disintegrate in a beach environment. Azurite is an ore of copper - there are no copper deposits anywhere near the Florida beaches.

    Using occam's razor it's probably beach glass.
