Wow Cheesy

That is awesome Scott, nice shot!  Is there a name for that type of structure?  Looks like piles of silver treasure!

Wow-nice rock, but I would have mistakenly called it Mica if I had found it in the wild.

cheers,

Erosion is the thing for me
I just don't like to dig - you see
Picking rocks up right off the ground
is good enough for this lucky old rockhound

I bought it from a rock shop located in Denton NC a while back.  Here's his online store:

I found some great flat hematite crystals at Graves mountain years ago. They are neat, singles. I didn't explore the area enough to see what else could be there.
I swear I will take some pics when I find them. I moved! Boxes of rocks are stacked, badly labeled. I was never a good curator anyway.
