Travertine is a dense mineral consisting of a massive usually layered calcite (calcium carbonate, CaCO3) formed by deposition from spring waters or especially from hot springs. It is often beautifully colored and banded as a result of the presence of iron compounds or other impurities. Extensive deposits exist at Tivoli, near Rome. Travertine is one of the most frequently used stones in modern architecture, and is commonly seen as façade material, wall cladding, and flooring.

ETC’s Travertine collections are classified as cross cut which describes the direction in which the stone is cut from the extracted blocks. Fleuri Cut aka Cross Cut is a cut made parallel to the bed. The layers of the sediment compiled one on top of each other create the formation of the bed. Vein Cut is a cut made perpendicular to the direction of the bed.

Travertine is a sedimentary rock that originated as a limestone (calcium carbonate) that changed overtime due to extreme heat and pressure from the earth’s core. Holes and voids were created through out the stone layers when pressurized hot water and steam were forced through the rock during formation and the cooling process.

Historically Travertine has been used through out the centuries to create a timeless beauty in natural stone from Ancient Rome to the Getty.
