Travertine is a very porous sedimentary limestone, formed by the deposition of calcium carbonate and the subsequent decomposition of the vegetal components incorporated in the mass. It is by no means unusual to find imprints of plant and animal fossils. Incorporated oxides can give travertine colors ranging from milk white to walnut, passing through various shades from yellow to red. This material has reasonable mechanical properties and is widely used in buildings, since low hardness means it is very easy to work.
Travertine is mostly used for wall cladding but can also be found in flooring applications, following special treatment. This material is not recommended for humid environments.
Among our natural stones collection, you can find Travertino Silver, Travertino Nocce, Travertino Light and other variations ranging from yellow to red, grey and sandy beige.
