Nelsonite Rock Specimen - composed mainly of ilmenite, rutile and apatite
collected from near Bryant, Nelson County, Virginia
Approximate size - 1 to 2 inches
A piece of nelsonite surface collected. The white apatite weathers out fairly quickly once near the surface, this leaves the rock with pits/holes where the apatite was.
Nelsonite was named for Nelson County, Virginia where it was first found near Roseland. It occurs in Nelson and Amherst counties in dike-like bodies that are as much as 2000 feet long. It is also present in eastern Roanoke County. Deposits of nelsonite were a major source of ilmenite in Virginia. The titanium dioxide that was recovered from ilmenite was used in the manufacture of paint pigments. This specimen was collected in the late 90's from near Bryant, Virginia.

The world in which The Wheel of Time takes place is lifted directly out of Jordan's pages; it's huge and consists of many different environments. How you navigate the world will depend largely on which game - single player or multipayer - you're playing. The single player experience, with a few exceptions, will see Elayna traversing the world mainly by foot (with a couple notable exceptions). In the multiplayer experience, your character will have more access to travel via Ter'angreal, Portal Stones, and the Ways. However you move around, though, you'll quickly discover that means of locomotion can easily become the least of the your worries...
During your travels, you quickly discover that four locations are crucial to your success in the game. Not surprisingly, these locations are the homes of The Wheel of Time's main characters. Some of these places are ripped directly from the pages of Jordan's books, made flesh with Legend's unparalleled pixel-pushing ways. Other places are specific to the game, conceived and executed with the intent of expanding this game world even further. Either way, they provide a backdrop for some of the most intense first person action and strategy you'll have this year.
