West Virginia the "Mountain State"

After my request of some help to find an image to head this thread of West Virginia I received several images from FMF's minsurfers, thank you to all!.
The first image I received was from Bob Weaver (thanks Bob) and that's why I use it. Anyway, I hope other people continue publishing their images of the West Virginia minerals. As I said before, more images we publish more useful and instructional will be these threads.

After an intense search I had not chance to find some more image for this state in order to update it. Some FMFer could help?
