Cave Coral Landscape
Reference work entry
This is a landscape of calcium carbonate or gypsum deposits that form on the surfaces of stalactites or stalagmites. Coral-like features are common in caves, and they are a type of isohomogeneous sediment. They have several causes of formation. They can form in the splashing or capillary water or underwater, but it is difficult to make a strict distinction based on their morphology (Fig. 13).
