Term Stalagmite
Definition

A rocky formation that occurs on the floor of a limestone cave in the place where drops of water filled with minerals (mainly calcium carbonate) land. The minerals gradually compile, forming a normally conical shape. If, as it grows, it merges with its corresponding stalactite, the resulting structure is called column.
