It's coming from the Tura Limestone itself and moisture..... what evidence is there that this mineralization is the result of a modern phenomenon and not an ancient one? Other than it is observed on ancient hieroglyphics in the chamber and that when the chamber was first open precipitated mineral deposits were described to be on the surfaces of the limestone..........
