Deposits formed by dripping water like, soda straws, stalactites and stalagmites.
A formation built up from falling drops, or water running down walls, depositing calcite. Sometimes it can also be aragonite or gypsum.
A cave deposit formed by precipitation of calcium carbonate from groundwater entering an underground cavern.
Calcite deposits caused by precipitation
Forms where water drips fall from cave roofs and walls, usually of calcite.
the form of calcium carbonate found in stalactites and stalagmites
dripstone mineral deposits are found in places where sandstone caprock, or cave roof, has been eroded and allows water seepage into cave passageways.
Limestone (travertine in a cave) formed by the precipitation of calcium carbonate out of groundwater.
A general term for calcite or other mineral deposit formed in caves by dripping water. It includes stalactites and stalagmites, as well as similar deposits formed by flowing water.
Calcium carbonate deposited from solution as water enters a cave through the zone of aeration. Forms stalactites, stalagmites and other cave deposits.
