In geological terms the region of Tuscany is not all that ancient, and for the most part it cannot be placed earlier than the Tertiary Age. A metamorphosis taking place in the Tertiary Age does appear, in point of fact, to have produced the particularly crystalline quality of the marble from the Apuan AIps, while another example of prized marble is that of the so called ‘Giallo di Siena,’ which comes from the Montagnola district. However, the most widespread stone in Tuscany is without doubt what is known as ‘macigno,’ a quartzose sandstone, while in the Apuan AIps and the Garfagnana a vast karstic area gives rise to numerous caves abounding in remains of palaeontological and prehistoric times. Geothermie phenomena in the region are many and various, and thermal baths are to be found all over the region, from the Lucchesia to the Sienese Maremma, as well as unusual phenomena such as the jets of hot air known as ‘soffioni’ in the region between the Cecina and the Cornia discharges of gas carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, and the springs of hot water frequent in the territory of Lucca and of Siena.
