A speleothem is a mineral cave formation. Minerals are dissolved from the surrounding rock (usually limestone, above or below ground) and are redeposited in reasonably pure form as stalactitles (that come down), stalactmites (that come up), helictites (that go all over the place) and spar (chunky crystals usually formed underwater). This one looks like calcite ( calcium carbonate) spar.
