What Is Travertine?

Travertine is a dense and banded stone, generally displaying warm colors that include cream, beige, and brown. It is formed by mineral deposits from natural springs and is a popular material in home building as a unique-looking alternative to marble or granite. If you’re looking to add some class and romance to your home, this is the stone for you.
