Fool's gold

3/52 for the group 2015 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: C is for Crystal

As I'm married to a geologist, we do have some interesting crystals around but due to lack of time I had to grab the handiest specimen which is a lump of slate with one surface covered in iron pyrites (fool's gold).

For some reason this shot didn't come out very golden looking, but it does show the cubic shape of the crystals quite nicely.
