Flowstone, cut and polished

Reactions:  
Another of the samples I cut and polished: This flowstone originates from an exposed karst cavity. The sample is taken from the floor of the former cave that is now infilled with flowstone and other sediments. These deposits form where water flows over rock walls or floors. Looks pretty cool, no?
