This is a test.....this is ONLY a test

I'm posting this image of a crystal from the Red Cloud Fluorite Mine, Gallinas Mts, New Mexico for two reasons:
1) Through the scope I ID'd the mineral as apatite but in the photo the lower part of the xl looks hexagonal while the upper part looks more tetragonal.....
2) On my photo set-up at home I see four versions of the single image - one in my image folder, one on my tethering software, one in MY email, and one on my Chromebook. SO, I wanted to see how the color appeared on Mindat!!

Any comments are welcome!
