Travertine Table Fabrication
Travertine is characterized by a porous like sponge structure, a small hardness (does not leave a scratch on glass), light color (white, grayish, yellowish, brown).
The porosity of travertine is due to bubbles of sulfur dioxide gas, which rise to the surface through the layers of the calcareous mixture.
If travertine is cut parallel to formation of sediment, it will be possible to easily see circular openings forming from sulfur dioxide gas raising to surface. Some fabricators fill up holes with special pre-colored flowing glue, others, on the contrary – leave the pores opened and unfilled.
The surface of filled travertine is then polished to refined shine finish. The unfilled surface – as a rule is left rough – creates an atmosphere of warmth and comfort.
Caring for travertine is very similar to caring for a marble.
