Hi Ken (and others)

Pyrite crystals sprinkled over a colour-zoned fluorapatite crystal from the Foote Mine, King's Mountain, Cleveland Co., North Carolina. FOV 4mm.

Hey thanks Steve! :D I have a big ol' chunk of pyrite that I picked up in a mineral shop at the base of Linville Mountain. Of course if you look around enough you can find this stuff most anywhere. A nice image of the crystals Steve, thanks again! :D
