Foote Mine, King's Mountain, Cleveland County, North Carolina (TYPE LOCALITY)
Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 6.5 x 1.2 cm
Ex. Rice Northwest Museum
SHARP, golden crystals to 7 mm, including several of unusual thickness and width, perched nicely on a well trimmed matrix. An important example of both species and loclaity (andthis is type locale for the species). Many people do not realize that this location figured so prominently in identifying some of the rare phosphate species, but it did (in the 1960s).
