Photographed at a Gem and Mineral show here in St. Louis (August 2005)

Carl Cook and I joined Dave and Cindy Lochhaas (Columbia, MO)
at the show today here in St. Louis. We had a lot of fun visiting and
looking at all the minerals and fossils.

Special thanks to John Schooler for allowing me photograph this specimen.
