Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. The healing temples of the God Asclepius in ancient Crete and Greece were some of the most famous medical treatment centers ever built in the old world. Before people were admitted, they would then be taken to special limestone mineral springs hot baths to not only to clean themselves, but purify their bodies by the special healing water in these springs called today, 'Travertine'. The mineral hot springs of limestone produce water containing helpful minerals such as Calcium hydroxide, which is also called limewater, which kills worms, and many other, if not all insects. Limestone is the root of many crystals including, agate, calcite, dolomite, lapis and septarian, just to name a few. Therefore, it takes on the metaphysical properties of its additional minerals. Limestone is said to be an assisting stone used to enhance healing properties, encourages purification, reminds us of our innocence, grounds and centers us and entices positive thoughts. Due to its grounding make-up of clay, sand, organic remains, iron oxide and other materials, many limestones exhibit different colors, especially on weathered surfaces. Therefore, the color of the limestone can help assist with colors of the Auric field and Chakra centers. Red and tan stones for the Root Chakra and orange for the Sacral Chakra.
Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-colored, and even rusty varieties. It is formed by a process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate, often at the mouth of a hot spring or in a limestone cave. In the latter, it can form stalactites, stalagmites, and other speleothems. It is frequently used in Italy and elsewhere as a building material. Travertine is a terrestrial sedimentary rock, formed by the precipitation of carbonate minerals from solution in ground and surface waters, and/or geothermally heated hot-springs.Similar (but softer and extremely porous) deposits formed from ambient-temperature water are known as tufa. Both calcite and aragonite are found in hot spring travertines; aragonite is preferentially precipitated when temperatures are hot, while calcite dominates when temperatures are cooler. When pure and fine, travertine is white, but often it is brown to yellow due to impurities.

Our Listing Photographs
What you see IS what you get at Kidz Rocks! Besides using high quality Nikon lenses, we use 4500 color temperature 100 CRI lighting. 4500 temperature being the closest to natural light and CRI being Color Rendering Index or a light sources ability to faithfully render the colors. Solux is the only company that makes a full 100 CRI bulb. The adult hand in the photos is my hand and I have a very large hand measuring 8 inches from wrist to finger tip.
While many stores do not disclose treatments done to certain types of minerals after they are mined, we disclose all treatments in our listing descriptions. If the product listing does not say it was treated then it is a 100% natural rock just as it came out of the ground. Treatments are not always something to shy away from as some do. Many treatments simply reproduce the exact same process that mother nature uses and/or cleans the specimen so it may be enjoyed.
