Stalactites and Stalagmites
Stalactites are rocks hanging off caves roofs. They look like icicles and they feel bumpy and sharp at the tip. They have lots of colours like brown, red, orange and brown red. Stalactites are formed by calcium mineral. The calcium mineral comes from limestone.

Stalagmites are like stalactites but they are formed on the ground of caves. They look like icicles forming on the ground. They feel bumpy and at the tip it is sharp.
