Travertine is a sedimentary rock which is formed by the transformation of limestone. Carbon-dioxide which water passes through limestone, dissolves it and becomes saturated in it. Changes in temperature and pressure occur and the carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere as it reaches the surface of the earth. As carbon dioxide is released at these hot springs, the limestone loses its ability to remain in solution and re-crystallizes over tiny plants, algae and moss. Over time layers and layers of this new stone build up which is the travertine we see today.
