Classic travertine is a material with a uniform light beige colour . Its very high porosity brings out the uniqueness of the natural stone, reminding us of the classical and baroque architecture in Rome.
Classic travertine, if cut at right angles to the grain brings out the slightly darker veining, highlighting the compactness and homogeneity of the structure despite the porosity.
Classic travertine, if cut parallel to the grain, has a slightly cloudy effect in the tone on tone colours and a much more compact look.
