I guess I lied…

I guess I lied, I did find one underwater pic that did actually turn out into more than a blur. All of the formations under the water were massive and cone shaped like these, and whenever the sunlight from way above managed to penetrate into the water, the stalagmites had a weird phosphorescent kind of glow, due to the blue-green color of the water in the lake. It gets the color from the fact that it’s very pure (as a subterreanean source = no pollutants or particulate matter) and the blue color is helped along by the high level of magnesium in the water (making it unsafe to drink.)
