Travertine stone are the holes within the stone which are caused by carbon dioxide evasion or CO2 bubbles in the mixture as it is setting. Metamorphic rock is a rock that has undergone changes through usually pressure and heat. It causes the rock to change or go through a “metamorphosis” that often forms crystals in the rock giving granite that sparkling look.
Travertine’s colors are typically warm and range from the lightest white or cream to beige, gold, brown, and even red. Slight color and pattern variations between tiles keep them from looking too uniform. This type of stone is also available in a variety of finishes, including polished, honed, brushed, saw cut, and tumbled. Most commonly, travertine tiles are used indoors for bathroom flooring, , kitchens, outdoor spaces, and to decorate walls, ceilings, and countertops. Before being polished and honed, the tile provides a high friction surface suitable for use outside to prevent slipping. For this reason, you often see travertine tiles and pavers installed by pools, but they’re somewhat rough on bare feet if they’re not sanded some.Explore Our Travertine Collection
