Travertine has become one of the most famous stones in the building market today. Although marble, limestone and travertine are composed of calcium carbonate (CaCo3) travertine is different from those stones due to its mode of formation and structure. While it has an identical mineral composition to limestone and marble, the unique swirls of color make this stone a fashionable choice.
There are small cavities in travertine stone which change its physical structure and characteristics compared to limestone. However, these holes don’t mean that travertine is not a reliable material, just look at the Roman Coliseum. Travertine is a remarkably anisotropic material which gives the stone a clearly different appearance depending on which way it is cut. Cutting travertine perpendicular to the bedding accentuates and emphasizes the grain and is labeled as vein-cut. The vein-cut finish reveals the natural elongated cavities within the stone. Travertine that is cut parallel to the bedding is named cross-cut which reveals cloud-like patterns in the stone.
