The renowned ethologist and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins asked me permission some time ago to include a photo of a Navajun pyrite from my collection in his projected book Outgrowing God: A Beginner’s Guide as a little help to back his theories about biological evolution. And finally here it is.
The original photo can be seen at FMF by clicking here.
This is the second time that this specimen becomes popular - it was already on the cover of a music album:

When Google allowed to count the number of sites a particular image was posted on (I think that it no longer does), I found such a photo in 990 different pages, in a great range of sizes. None of them, except FMF, Mindat, Wikipedia and Wikimedia (and my own personal site), complied the very simple conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution Licence.

Thanks for your comments, Tobi.
