HOLOCENE TUFA AND DRIPSTONE

Southstone Rock, Shelsley Walsh, Hereford and Worcester

  

Tufa is a soft form of limestone that is primarily deposited by calcium-rich springs as the waters emerge from the ground.

  

The impressive tufa cliffs of Southstone Rock, near the village of Shelsley Walsh, are well known for their tufa formations. Some of the tufa has been radiocarbon dated and is up to 7,000 years old.

 

This specimen also has layers of dripstone (calcite). It is from an old university collection and has an accompanying label from the British Museum (Natural History).
