Crystal King stalactite formation.

Ohio Caverns

With stalagmites, the showpiece Crystal King formation (pressed pennies of it are available in the gift shop), and the tiny, blink-and-you'll-miss-it "Old Town Pump" formation, pointed out to passersby by an employee sitting next to it with a flashlight: There it is. Old Town Pump, there it is. Old Town Pump. Old Town Pump. Right there. Old Town Pump.
