Stalagmite Collected from Cleaves Cove by John Smith


In 1894, John Smith realised that there had never been any research printed on the formation of stalactites and stalagmites.  After having ample opportunities himself for their study during archaeological explorations of Cleaves Cove near Dalry, he published a book of monographs on the subject.


This stalagmite is one of the ones which he removed to study.
