Calcite is one of the most prevalent minerals found in the state of Indiana.  These first two pictures show clusters of honey colored calcite crystals with remnants of pink dolomite.  The third picture shows the reverse with a large concentration of pink dolomite with two calcite crystals.  These minerals were found years ago in Harrison County, Indiana.
