TRAVERTINEA form of limestone, travertine is characterized by pitted holes and troughs in its surface. Naturally occurring, these troughs suggest signs of considerable wear and tear over time. Sometimes installers use grout to fill the holes, travertine can be purchased "filled" or "unfilled". It can also be polished to a smooth, shiny finish, and comes in a variety of colors from grey to coral-red.
Because travertine is a natural stone, there is a big variety of designs, colors and shades in which it is formed. Most of the colors and designs are formed naturally over time by the mixing of impurities and iron components. The excellent aesthetic is very commonly used for the decoration of walls and floors.
The excellent visual appeal of travertine is entirely dependent upon the way it has been polished or treated to give shine and outclass strength.
