Woah. 0.0 Now THAT is a cool find. Wish I just picked up stuff like that. XD The best I ever find is really fancy quartz and fool's gold...

No calcite is the most water soluble mineral and would easily have dissolved if it was next to the river. It looks like it mostly consists of quarts, feldspar and iron oxide with possibly a hint of manganese. Yay for taking geology class!

Most of the others were dissolved or partlyoxidized.

I can ask the local (in Fargo) rock guy if he knows what it is.
It's purty!

Ooo! Pretty!

What kind of rock/mineral is it? It looks like it's several all mixed together...

I'm pretty sure the massive crystal is calcite, but i dunno if the druzy is also calcite, or something else. I'm terrible at identifying minerals :D
