Travertine natural stone is the result of precipitation as hot water rapidly cools on exit from the limestone through which it has passed, and minerals collected by the water are deposited and revealed as rich, creamy colours, occassionally complimented by tiny shell patterns.
Travertine is available in various finishes including honed and filled, polished and tumbled.
A couple of examples of Travertine natural stone tiles available through Beccles Tile & Bathroom Centre include:
Savannah is an unfilled, tumbled travertine which has a gentle, aged finish with waves of cappuccino to delicate browns giving this popular stone both variety and versatility.
