They could be a magical created version of stalagmites and stalactites but in this form of the spire. The material needed drawn from the very mists surrounding it, easy bet that those mists are not just water, they are sure to contain something unique, and the spires leach the stuff for its own form.

Ooh, I like that idea. 

In general, I wonder how the internals were shaped, since the outside is so durable.

They get their water from the mists so unless they have a heavy filtering process then it's just water

They do an aweful lot of waste treatment and recycling, any of that should be more than enough to filter out most types of contaminants that might be in the mist. The vast majority simply wouldnt condense at the same temp/pressure state as the water itself, adn what's left might well be as simple more traditional acid rains and other water soluble stuff.

It might simple be chemicals and trace minerals drawn from the mists, like how people say that rain now carries high levels of estrogen. Also, it might not be some thing physically there in the mist, but magiclly or metaphorically there.

Such a huge construct with with extensive capabilities, providing a suitable environment, water, light and other necessities. I keep thing it is like a living entity, even if it is not organic.
