Travertine Stone

When consulting Jim Lytell Marble and Stone Restoration, or your local travertine company,  it is good to know the basics about your travertine floor. Your travertine floor is a calcareous metamorphic rock. It’s a partially metamorphosed limestone. Travertine is formed when limestone that has been dissolved by hot acidic water solutions is exposed to the open air letting carbon dioxide escapes from solution. Due to its structure being very porous and full of holes, the holes can be filled and honed leaving it dense enough to be a type of marble making travertine stone a great choice for high traffic areas. Travertine is also able to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, so it can be used in outdoor settings and is frequently found by swimming pools or on patios. Filled and sealed travertine will be water proof and stain proof, but unfilled travertine can absorb things like food spills due to its porosity. Most travertine tiles are about half an inch thick, and the surface of a travertine tile can come filled or unfilled. Its iron content determines the color of travertine. Travertine is a light colored stone, so it will frequently be seen in shades of tan, white, gray, gold, and light brown, but can also come in darker tones of rusty red. Historically travertine was a very popular choice among artists and architects in Rome and Italy. Up until about 10 years ago, Italy was the main source of travertine. Today travertine is found not only in Italy, but here in the USA, Peru, Mexico, Turkey, and Iran.
