About Stalactites


Does a stalactite have any special properties. My grandmother had a friend that had a cave near his house, and a long time ago, he broke a stalactite off and gave it to her (before caves became "protected" and taking them became illegal). She gave it to me when I was eleven or twelve. Its always made me feel good just to look at it and handle it, and to think how long it must have taken for it to form. Mine is almost a foot long and kind of wide at the top.

Calcium Bicarbonate transformed into Calcium Carbonate

Stalagmites: Projective Magic
Stalactites: Receptive Magic

Stalactite and Stalagmite: mineral forms often found in caves; sometimes
collectively called dripstone. A stalactite is an icicle-shaped mass of calcite
attached to the roof of a limestone cavern. A stalagmite is a cone of calcite
rising from the floor of a cavern.

Stalagmites and stalactites are often found in pairs, the stalagmite being
formed as a result of further evaporation and precipitation from solution
after the trickle of water falls from the stalactite.

Stalactites and stalagmites often meet each other to form solid pillars.

Calcium Carbonate

CaCo3, or calcium carbonate in the form of calcite,
is the main constituent of calcareous corals...
