Caption: Calcium carbonate stalactites. 19th-century illustration of stalactites formed from limestone (calcium carbonate). These formations are created in caves as rainwater passing down through the ground dissolves and redeposits limestone rock. This artwork, dated 1802, is from 'British Mineralogy', issued between 1802 and 1817 by British naturalist James Sowerby (1757-1822).
