Travertine Calm & Soothing
Travertine stone is a form of limestone. It often forms near mineral-rich hot springs. Gas bubbles become trapped and the stone develops a pitted surface. Epoxy or dust resin may be used to fill these pitted surfaces. The travertine is given a more finished appearance by filling the small holes and pits. A sophisticated elegance. It’s a calcareous rock. It is particularly reactive to acids such as those present in lemons, vinegar, and alcohol. These acids can leave marks and rings on the stone, etching it. Travertine, like limestone, ranges in hardness, density, and porosity. Some travertine stones are more difficult to work with than others. It’s not as soft as soapstone but it can’t compete with the hardness of granite. The colors of travertine are earthy and warm. From the lightest ivories to the palest creams, there’s something for everyone. Creating a unique look with travertine stone is simple. This natural stone will provide you with years of enjoyment. Your imagination and a little common sense are the only limits on how you can use travertine stone.
