Travertine

Travertine is a form of calcium carbonate created by deposits from springs or rivers – a dense, closely compacted form of limestone. It is often beautifully coloured and banded because of iron compounds or other impurities in the stone. An excellent stone for residential and commercial use, travertine is available in a number of finishes. It is becoming increasingly popular because it has the elegant look of marble, but requires very little maintenance after sealing.
