    Regina, the provincial capital, is the second largest city in Saskatchewan. Much of the architecture features Tyndall stone is a dolomitic limestone quarried in Manitoba. This tan colored stone has very prominent dark inclusions, and is most notable on the relief carvings of native animals encircling the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. You can see more photos from the museum, and photos of other carvings and architectural ornament from Regina on my site.
