Travertine is a calcareous sedimentary stone, made of finely crystalline massive deposits of Calcium Carbonate that varies in shades of ivory, silver, cream, white, and golden-brown colored limestone. It was formed over 600,000 years by chemical precipitation from solutions in surface waters and ground waters like around the mouth of springs, especially hot mineral springs.
Travertine has pronounced anisotropic properties with a sponge-like texture that could have up to two inch holes. These cavities are usually filled with surface colored cement to give a honed look.

With their comfortable and neutral color tones, travertine’s rough hew look adds texture and a striking appeal to any floor space.
