Travertine is a natural stone deposited by geothermally heated hot springs. The primary purpose of the travertine stone is in building. It has been used in construction for a very long time. Temples, bath complexes and various monuments have been built from travertine. It is one of the several natural stones that are used for paving patios, courtyards and garden paths. The stone is characterized by pitted holes and troughs in its surface which means that it has a concentric texture and porous surface. It can also be polished to a smooth, shiny finish, and comes in a variety of colors from grey to coral-red. Travertine is most commonly available in tile and pavers for floor installations.
