Well, humidity can certainly mobilize salt that is already precipitated on or near the surface when it condenses and evaporates.....
I'm sure that rainwater was were the moisture came from to produce the original salt mineralization on the limestone walls of Campbell's Chamber both/either before the casing was installed and/or after the casing was removed (considering how much salt got deposited on the Queen's Chamber's Tura Limestone I might think that during construction it was the exposed top surface that was the most likely source of the majority of that). Whatever the source Campbell's Chamber was not that susceptible to it considering the type of deposits present there.......
Is there any evidence of significant mobilization of salt in Campbell's Chamber after 1837 or that there was any mention of the original salt being cleaned off the limestone walls to allow "forgery" to occur on a canvas of virgin limestone so the salt could come back so selectively afterwards?
