...H. F. Gardner Abstract A reproduction of the famous Sterlingbush cavern has recently been completed in the New York State Museum at Albany. The size of the crystals, their unusual color and thé ingenious method of construction of the exhibit make a short description of it worth while. Copyright...

... carbonates and in the underlying Oligocene–Miocene chalk, which also contains a few small caves, distinctive authigenic calcites, and oil that ascended through a dense networks of fractures. The stable isotopes of calcites form a positive trend, while those of the dolomites form a negative trend. Dolomite δ...

... coated by laminae of columnar low-Mg calcite (LMC) alternating with laminae of LMC, high-Mg calcite (HMC), and aragonite. Changing mineralogy likely reflects a changing Mg/Ca ratio during evolution of the pool water during mineral precipitation, degassing, and evaporation. Pearls in Lower Cave...

... ). However, Kirchmayer (1969) demonstrated that calcite-to-calcite recrystallization occurred in cave pearls known to be only decades old. In this study, we document recrystallization of calcite to calcite in less than eight months in experimental cave pearls from an underground limestone mine. This rapid...

A dead millipede could be coated in calcite when floating in the cave immediately after death; a dead vertebrate carcass would have to rot to expose its bones after the cave dried out...

...) and on the surface immediately around the cave (n = 32). The mismatch of genera and species in the stalagmites, cave, and surface near the cave argues for a wetter and cooler late Holocene climate in the southwestern United States from ca. 3200 to 800 yr ago. The three possible sources of the mites preserved...
