[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the cave it encounters air with a lower carbon dioxide partial pressure. To restore its balance, a water droplet discharges carbon dioxide. As the calcium bicarbonate can no longer be retained in the solution, it is deposited in the form of tiny limestone crystals known as calcite. This ongoing process builds up calcite deposits, which in turn produce the cave formations.
Dripstone is the most commonly found. With slow droplet formation calcite is deposited against the ceiling, resulting in the growth of stalactites hanging downwards. With more rapid droplet formation, water containing calcite in solution falls to the floor, resulting in the building up of a stalagmite from below. Scientific tests showed that stalagmites in the Cango Caves grow at a rate of 5 to 6 millimeters per 100 years and stalactites 2 to 5 millimeters per 100 years.
