Travertine stone, sometime being called "travertine marble", "travertine limestone" or even travertine granite, is also known as calc-sinter and calcareous tufa; when used for decorative purposes, it's often referred as onyx marble and Mexican onyx. Another nickname for travertine is "Egyptian Oriental alabaster". Travertine color has significant variations within the same slab even the same tile, but in general can be categorized into beige cream or yellow (Chinese), gold and yellow (Turkish), walnut, noce or noche, light white or ivory and red travertine (Turkish). Travertine can be used for building applications such as fabricating floor tiles, wall tiles, countertops. Certain types are available for carving sinks, tables, fireplace mantel surrounds, columns, gazebos, fountains, statues etc.

World travertine colors

Travertine, large quarry exist at Tivoli, Italy, near Rome. In fact, Travertine gets its name from this town. Tivoli was known as Tibur in ancient Roman times. The ancient name for the stone was "Lapis Tiburtinus" meaning "Tibur Stone", which has been renamed to Travertine.
Travertine forms from hot spring water percolating up through underground limestone. When the water evaporates, it leaves behind layers of dissolved limestone and other minerals, giving it its banded appearance.
The characteristic holes in travertine are the result of trapped gas bubbles; as the gas escapes, crystals form in the cavities. The resultant stone is a smooth, porous, naturally decorative material which offers a soft cream hue, and overall old-world beauty.

Limestone colors

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed of mainly calcium carbonate. As most natural limestone rock formations contain mainly non-crystallized minerals, blocks taken from limestone quarries possess very uniform composition, texture, and structure. Natural limestones had originally been deposits on shallow sea beds, so they could carry certain visible fossil patterns. Limestone color ranges from white, blue, beige cream yellow to gray, with many variations of ivory and light gold usually considered most popular for countertop fabrications. Popular finishes are honed ("matte"), polished and tumbled. Tumbled limestones are mainly for paving applications, while polished and honed limestone slabs are commonly used in flooring and wall covering.

Tiles and Slabs

Travertine tile is used as floor tile in both residential and commercial buildings, as well as a decorative option for wall cladding and backsplashes. Travertine tile has both indoor and outdoor uses, being a durable stone, and can be both functional and aesthetically striking.
There are Travertine sinks, mosaic tiles, statuary, fireplace surrounds, tub surrounds, vanities, and tables. Travertine can be used as accessories such as light switch plates, trim, vases, and coasters. Travertine can be used for countertops but it's not recommended. It scratches, stains, and absorbs liquids easier than other natural stones. If you plan to use Travertine for your countertop, make sure it is a harder and less porous stone.
