Stalagtite or mite?
There's no such thing as a tailwind.
It's either a headwind, or you're going well.

No, I think Flowstone is calcium based, and is usually a creamy white colour :(

No,

Lets recap, It's a close up picture, it's underground..... the clue was Stalactite or mite, the right area! but, it is a formation.

Ok What's my other hobby, That's a clue :)

Edit I should have said it's not a stalactite or might. but, it is a formation.

Are you telling us that your 'other hobby' is photographing 'fatbergs' in the sewer system? Each to his own :shock:

Ah, caving! Do I spot Gollum's ring sparkling in the depths?

More likely, whatever it is that is forming (has formed?) has a name known only to speleologists.

Time to lighten our darkness :)
