Cave Cake Landscape, Lampstand Stone Landscape
Reference work entry
This is a landscape of cave sediments that looks like an old-fashioned candlestick. After the formation of a stalactite, stalagmite or stone column, water fills the cave bottom again, and the rising water eventually submerges these features. Deposits start to extend around them on the water surface, forming candlestick-like or lotus leaf-like depositional features, which are also called ‘High Hopes’ abroad (Fig. 12).
