Unfortunately on this page you won't get
informations about a wellness weekend or advices for a senceless beauty
care, because this was a bang-hard period of three
days with Chianti and 32 C° sulphurous warm water.
first you will ask yourself what thing is photographically shown on the left? It is a calcite - aragonite marble (d
= 18mm). If the crystalline radial structured balls wouldn't
get in rough touch in the
sinter basins, you would find thousands of crystallized hedgehogs . Constantly taken around by natural water power or by visitors the
needles are not able to develope itself and so a mineral time indicator
with a ring appereance reminding to the cross section of a tree
is the result. From
the outside inward the first dark ring is
enclosed by some brighter and it would be very interesting to
determine the average of the climate the last 8-12 years or if the water was extremely dirty ( may a forest
burning or a construction at the thermal bath). Probably the
walls of the sinter terraces indicate the same features .
It ist only a little
unchique sawing at this rare creation of nature!
by the cooling down of the sulfurous calziumcarbonate water the
precipitating product develops the creation of this marble. (the distance of the source
the terraces amounts apprx.1000 m). The different thickness of
the rings are probably the result of the changing temperatures
between the summer and winter seasons .
In winter the
water is cooling down faster and causes a higher precipitation (thick
This place is
really a masterpiece of nature and should be treated respectfully!
