Travertine

Travertine is often used as a building material. Rich deposits of aged, dried and hardened travertine were mined by the Romans. The largest building in the world constructed mostly of travertine is the Coliseum in Rome. Other notable buildings using travertine extensively include the Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris and the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California.

The stone is characterised by pitted holes and troughs in its surface. Although these troughs occur naturally, they suggest to some eyes that considerable wear and tear has occurred over many years. Some installers use a grout to fill these holes, whereas others leave them open.  travertine can even be purchased "filled" or "unfilled." It can be effectively polished to a smooth, shiny finish and comes in a variety of colors from grey to coral-red.

Travertine is one of the most frequently used stones in modern architecture, and is commonly seen as façade material, wall cladding, and flooring.

Tumbled

Tumbled tiles assume a worn-out / rustic aspect, antique ("gently aged"). The edge are rounded or chiselled. This aspect is produced by the slow wearing out during the tumbling process
Style, atmosphere, images and colours for natural stones as travertino, white and pink Perlino, botticino marble , red verona marble.
