    Needle landed on slipmat, should I be worried?

    So I was about to play a 7”, dropped the needle down gently with the cue lever, but I missed the vinyl by a few millimeters. The needle getting dragged on the slipmat caused a horrible sound so I lifted it up immediately. Could this have damaged the needle? (Also the mat is a cork one)

    Stylus cartridge very close to record surface
