Saturday Random Assortment

Whoever it was who guessed yesterday's mystery picture was a rusty nail was absolutely right! Here is a view of the tip at 200x:

And now a random assortment of photos-

A phonograph record at 200x

At 200x you can see why some people prefer calling this a phonograph stylus rather than a phonograph needle.

A chip off of a bamboo plant we have growing in the kitchen at 60x.

Ground coffee at 200x

Ajax powdered cleaner is pretty powdery even at 200x.

Today's mystery image is at 60x. Can you guess what it is?
