Figure B-9. Newly-cut wet section of a stalagmite from Shangdong Cave, which is near Yangzhipo Cave (25.5N, 106.3E), ca. 30 km southwest of
Guiyang city, Guizhou, China. Comparison of this stalagmite with
another from Shangdong Cave illustrates how much speleothems can vary in one locality. Stalagmite was collected by Mr. Hong-lin Xiao.
