Travertine is a type of limestone but differs in that; it forms in hot springs called Karst. The sulphur content in the karst erodes the travertine creating holes in the stone. These holes are often filled with synthetic resins or cements that usually do not polish very well which often causes polished travertine to look inconsistent in appearance. Travertine tile is a natural material that has unique features that no other stone can offer and is commonly found in earth tones ranging from almost white and pale ivory to rich shades of red and brown, but can also be found in silver and reds. The distinctive design of travertine creates some of the most distinguished floor tiles. Travertine is ideal for commercial and residential use. It can be sued for floor tile, kitchen, bathroom wall tile, bathroom floor tile and more.
