jr_claud_h SHIMMER. Mineral-rich limestone starts to build up from a stalagtite up the ceiling.

Soon this will become one of the mighty stalagmites around the cave.

usgs Looking Upwards at Stalactite in Luray Caverns, Virginia

This image portrays a stalactite as seen from directly underneath in Luray Caverns, Virginia. The decorative dripstone features are called speleothems (from the Greek spelaion for cave and theme for deposit). The most familiar speleothems are stalactites and stalagmites. Stalactites hang downward from the ceiling and are formed as drop after drop of water slowly trickles through cracks in the cave roof. As each drop of water hangs from the ceiling, it loses carbon dioxide and deposits a film of calcite. The large cone-shaped stalactites begin as fragile tubes and then enlarge to cones when enough water accumulates to flow along the outside of these tubular soda straws. Deposition of calcite on the outside of the tubes, most of which are near the ceiling and taper downward, results in the familiar cone shapes.
Location: Luray, VA, USA
