Zuni Stone (Travertine, Zuni Rock)

A non-crystalline, porous rock found on the Zuni reservation. Travertine is a form of limestone (calcium carbonate) so in its pure form, it would be white, but most often travertine occurs in yellow, brown and gray hues due to the presence of other minerals. The late Zuni carver Leekya Deyuse was especially noted for carving with this stone and his descendents continue to use travertine in their carvings today.
