Travertine is a favorite stone used in architecture. Romans used travertine for building temples, the Coliseum, and a great variety of their architectural wonders. Travertine can be purchased filled or unfilled as well as with a shiny surface. When the surface is honed and smooth it is ideal for both commercial and residential installations. Travertine is great for floors, countertops, and can even be used for exterior applications. Disclaimer: NATURAL STONE IS CREATED BY MOTHER NATURE SO EACH SLAB IS UNIQUE.
