Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. Travertine often has a fibrous concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-coloured 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 limestone cave. In the latter, it can form stalactites and stalagmites. It is frequently used in Italy and elsewhere as a building material.
