About red River Sunset

We discovered “Red River Sunset” (TM) in 2019. When testing new materials for our jewelry production, we came across this thin dendritic layer within a rock. We immediately recognized that we had something extraordinary in front of us: A constant pattern resembling a horizon with trees and bushes in front of white snow-capped mountains under a bloodred sunset sky.

We named it “Red River Sunset” (TM) in honor of the unique red river near Cusco, Peru.

After laboratory testing this material we now know that Red River Sunset (TM) is a bicolored calcite-dominant carbonate. The red layer is more iron-rich, although the highest percentage found during testing has only 0.89 %. However, iron is a powerful coloring agent.

According to testing this material is most likely travertine. Travertine is a form of terrestrial limestone deposited around mineral springs, especially hot springs.

Fresh travertines vary widely in their porosity, from about 10% to 70%. Red River Sunset (TM) however, shows comparatively small porosity, which indicates it to be a very ancient travertine. Such old travertines may have a porosity as low as 2% due to the crystallization of secondary calcite in the original pore spaces. It also indicates that this travertine did form around a hot spring, rather than a cold one. Finally, given the fact that the material lacks the presence of magnesium, it is most likely that it did form in fresh water and not in seawater.
