The constitutive equation of fractured carbonate rock mass (Idziak, 1992) allowed to establish theoretical relationship between eigenvectors of crack and velocity tensors.
While the secondary means of carbonate rocks formation is; by the precipitation of ions (which form the carbonate minerals) due to the super saturation of the sea water with respect to these ions, majority of the carbonate rocks are formed primarily from the broken shells of marine organisms which get compacted and transform in to a carbonate rock over the geological time, these shells could be from either the internal or external skeleton of the marine organisms [1].

At 590 square kilometres, Band-e-Amir National Park--meaning 'dam of the Amir' encompasses six brilliant-blue freshwater lakes (below) nestled in a landscape of sheer cliff faces and natural dams formed from travertine--a porous calcium carbonate rock that was used in the construction of several historic buildings, such as the Colosseum in Rome.
Because the diagenetic processes that produce the large variety of carbonate rock textures are complex and largely unknown, we attempt a simple stochastic geometrical model that tries to reproduce the main features of the pore scale geometry.
