... in the Blue Hole of Lighthouse Reef Atoll. Unlike purely meteoric speleothems, the Belize example consists of a meteoric core, a marine aragonite crust, and a serpulid-micrite-rich outer crust as a result of postglacial flooding of the karst cave. The core of the stalactite has a tufaceous texture, containing...
