Travertine slabs can be a sophisticated natural stone solution of adding opulence to any area. The blend of earthy colours and individual patterning create an artwork in each slab. The strength and durability of Travertine slabs only add even greater appeal next to their beauty in colour and pattern. Popular uses for travertine include customization to bathrooms, kitchens, pool coping, outdoor patios and BBQ areas, even facades. Customization is always one of a kind when using natural travertine as no two slabs will be the same, adding personality and uniqueness to your space.
Travertine slabs are distinguishable by their naturally formed troughs and pit holes. Travertine is formed over thousands of years by subterranean springs, underground rivers and other water sources. These water sources carry mineral elements such as calcium carbonate that build up over long periods of time in the same way stalactites and stalagmites in caves are formed allowing for a range of colours from white to grey through to coral red. Most of the Travertine in Australia is sourced from Turkey and Iran which is known today to provide some of the highest quality travertine products in the world.
