Travertine vs Marble: What's the Difference?Learning Center
This stone is relatively soft and absorbent, so it requires a few coats of sealant to prevent debris from penetrating the stone. Travertine’s colors are typically warm and range from the lightest white or cream to beige, gold, brown, and even red. Slight color and pattern variations between tiles keep them from looking too uniform. This type of stone is also available in a variety of finishes, including polished, honed, brushed, saw cut, and tumbled.
