Caption: Travertine stalactites. Terraces of travertine limestone created by the deposition of calcium carbonate from a hot mineral spring. These travertine deposits at Pamukkale, Turkey, cover an entire hillside. Stalactites, more usually found in caves, are formed when carbonate precipitates out as water drips down from a ceiling, or in this case, from an overhang. Pamukkale means 'cotton castle' in Turkish.
