Travertine is a type of limestone that forms from geothermal springs. The terrestrial sedimentary rock has been used since Ancient Roman times, to construct temples, aqueducts, monuments and amphitheatres. Even the world’s largest building – the Colosseum – was constructed largely from travertine. Today, it remains a popular material - it is budget-friendly compared to limestone and is often chosen for floors and walls. Travertine is characterised by small holes that have been formed by water passing through the rock over time. These holes are then pre-filled with a resin or left unfilled. Colour tones span from subtle ivories to rich walnuts - with tumbled and honed surfaces providing a range of smooth and tactile options. Travertine is readily available and it is important to ensure the quality of this material is of the very best.
