Travertine’s Appearance

01 Feb Travertine’s Appearance

The surface of  Travertine is pitted with tiny, irregular holes and generally has ribbons or bands of color running through the tile. Pure, white travertine is rare. More often the stone is colored because iron or naturally occurring organic impurities affected the stone while it was forming. The stone comes in a wide range of warm colors that can work with different design palates. The color could be anywhere from white, cream, tan, brown, golden, or caramel to a yellow, red or gray.
