The limestone of the Findenig Formation was formed from a calcareous mud rich in clay, which was deposited in deep seas during the Devonian, about 390 million years ago. It contains mainly shells and skeletons of microorganisms (plankton). In the rock, dark red clayey layers alternate with lighter layers in which limestone predominates. The red colour is due to their ferrous mineral (hematite) content.
