Digging up halite specimens from the brine pools of Searles Lake for #GemORama!
"Tufa can only be formed underwater, which means these pinnacles were once completely submerged.

Calcium-rich groundwater bubbled up from underwater springs and mixed with the alkaline lake water to create calcium carbonate, the main component of tufa.

The tufa at the Trona Pinnacles is primarily an algal tufa. Algae aided tufa growth by removing carbon dioxide from the water as it photosynthesized, helping the calcium carbonate precipitate."
