Healing | Earthing | Centering | Positivity
Travertine is a banded, compact variety of limestone formed along streams, particularly where there are waterfalls and around hot or cold springs. Calcium carbonate is deposited where evaporation of the water leaves a solution supersaturated with the chemical constituents of calcite.
Limestone is used to enhance healing, encourages purification, reminds us of our innocence, grounds and centers us and encourages positive thoughts. 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. This is why limestone is such a mult-dimensional stone.
Travertine is closely related to Onyx.
