The source pools contain the fine oxygen-free or anaerobic dark gray clay. The spring water carries the clay from the Pliocene sea deposits that you find here in the area and on which the numerous olive groves have been planted. In the small spring ponds, the water comes to a stop and the fine clay is deposited on the bottom. The local spa users scrape the clay from the bottom and put it on heaps to smear it afterwards on their body. Pay attention! The channels seem shallow, but due to years of scraping the bottom, these channels have been deepened to sometimes more than 1 meter.
