About our Travertine products:
What is travertine?
Travertine is a natural stone (made in a similar way to limestone). It is a rock deposited from hot springs.
The colours range from beige, white, cream to silver, grey and charcoal depending on the type of travertine stone.
In its most natural form, travertine stone has holes and voids in the surface. Some renovators choose to have these holes filled for personal aesthetic reasons.
Travertine has been used around the world for thousands of years as a versatile building material. The most classic example is the Colosseum in Rome (which is made entirely from travertine stone).
It has always been a popular building stone because it has many practical properties. Travertine is known for being a very strong, durable stone. It is also weather and water resistant.
Bringing travertine into the home is known for increasing the overall value due to it’s quality and mass appeal.
What's the difference between travertine and limestone?
The difference between travertine and limestone are listed here:
- Travertine is a form of limestone. Limestone is formed at the bottom of lakes and oceans. Whereas, limestone that is made from thermal hot springs is known as travertine stone.
- When travertine is formed, the thermal springs typically create holes and voids in the stone. Limestone is formed from lakes and oceans, therefore it doesn’t have these surface holes.
- Travertine has a higher resistance to scratching, heat and stains.
