Flowstone
Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) formed by mineral-rich water that deposits the dissolved mineral on the walls of caverns and cliffs, forming a smooth and humpy growth.  The flowstone will continue to accumulate and grow as long as water continues flowing down.
See also Calcite, Aragonite, stalactites and stalagmites.
