Travertine is not the same stone as marble. Although, they have a similar appearance, travertine and marble are completely different stones. Sometimes travertine is known as travertine marble – but they aren’t the same.
The main differences between travertine and marble are:
Travertine is a type of limestone. It is typically recognised for its surface voids and holes. This is the most naturally form travertine. However, you can also get their holes honed and filled as well as polished. This makes the tiles completely flat and smooth surface – convenient for sweeping clean.
Compared with marble, travertine is more commonly used in floor installations. Due to travertine’s durability, weather resistance and other practical properties, it is well regarded as a practical tile especially for outdoor tiling. Marble is typically not used as often as travertine outdoors as it requires much more maintenance, upkeep and care. Therefore, marble tiles are used more in internal applications such as benchtops.
Travertine tiles are stronger and more weather resistant than marble tiles.
