FLOWSTONE
 
Cut and polished

Flowstone is deposited in caves or in underground fissures by the precipitation of calcite (calcium carbonate) from water. Flowstone is a type of travertine and can take various forms.

This example has been cut and polished revealing layers of calcite deposition.

It is from an old collection. The locality is Yorkshire. It is most likely to have been obtained from quarrying activities.
