A bit of a description with your photos would be nice.

Picture #1 may be salt speleothems.  Frost is also possible, but I'm going with Salt.

Picture #2 looks like a cut stalagmite.
Picture #4 may also be super-saturated saltwater.
Picture #7 looks like a mineralized ladder, probably a bit more water and mineral flow on the right than on the left.

Thank you for your help.

Could you tell me, please, what could it be at pictures 5,6 and 8. It may not be exactly what you just need to just what takes place there, or any indication. Please...

2. Onyx, 4, pumice, 5, salt, 6, need more perspective to determine, but it looks like a form of calcite 7, stalactite, stalagmite- would need to cut it open to say for sure 8 a river valley from space dried up at the right side with salt deposits. 1 salt
