Travertine?

 

Travertine is a type of limestone. Travertine is formed by the precipitation of calcium carbonate from the surface waters or hot springs. With the pressure and temperature change, carbondioxide gases is released from the the precipitation. The gas bubbles become trapped and create a pitted surface on the stone. It makes  the travertines typically  porous with some cavities.

 

The colours of the travertines are from grey to red, including beige which is most common colour.

 

Travertine is used most frequently for flooring and wall cladding.

Travertine is one of unique natural stone which is suitable for interior or exterior, for each hot or freezing climates.
