Hi Molly, looks like a tangled web of mineral veins where the host rock has been dissolved / washed away. As for the mineral.......gypsum, anhydritre, calcite....etc..etc...would need more info... Then again it might be tufa, porous calcium carbonate deposited from lime rich ground waters.

Cheers

Pete.

It looks like travertine, a form of chemical limestone that deposits near hot springs or waterfalls. It is typical of Rome (where I live) and has been used as building material since Roman times
