[db_pics/pics/M487e.jpg] Limonite after Pyrite from Ross Co. Ohio, USA (?) [db_pics/pics/M487f.jpg]

Flaoter cluster of psudomorps of Limonite after Pyrite cubes. This is out a collection and the label it came with says 'Copperas Mountain, Ross Co., Ohio', but I suspect the label is wrong - Ross Co. produced Pyrite specimens but I have not seen large cubes or Limonite psuedomorphs before. Regardless, it's a beautiful specimen, complete all around and undamaged.
