Clinton Elmore, Mineral Formation, Blue Spring Cave, White Co, TN

We stopped and shot this stretch of wall in the D passage because of the oddly colored minerals present there. There were also purple and orange minerals, or impurities in the white gypsum.

The blue color is likely Celestine, the yellowish color is gypsum.
