Pyrite in a Sea Bed Base

This is Pyrite, more commonly known as Fool's Gold, embedded in a piece of an ancient sea bed. I have never seen such perfect cubes. Just another of the amazing sights and photo opportunities at the Ozark Gem and Mineral Society show this year.

Fascinating Mike just goes to show what you have right under your nose sometimes and take for granted.

On the Nikons, I am a Canonite LOL always have been and have been really lucky in that they have never given me problems. I have never had one services or any of my lenses and have been using my one lens for 10 years (Tokina 80-400). The orange pixel is what they call a dead pixel, and apparantly it can happen quite often although thank heavens I have not had to deal with one. I hate cleaning the sensor of my camera and at the moment have soooo much dust on it that it is going to have to be done soon.
