Travertine is a sedimentary rock that began as limestone. The porous nature of limestone makes it a great reservoir for liquids. Heated by the Earth’s inner core, water rises as steam or hot mud baths, such as geysers. This hot liquid dissolves the limestone and rises to the Earth’s surface forming mud beds. After enough time passes, the mud bed cools and crystallizes to form a solid stone called travertine.
