Persian Travertine is a famous brand all around the world because of its wide variety in color and quality. Even within the same color, there is a wide range of patterns which makes the Persian Travertine exclusive in the world.
Travertine is the second most popular stone used as a building and finishing material after marble. However, the second place doesn’t mean that travertine is inferior to marble in either practical or decorative characteristic. All the more so because Travertine is actually marble, but young and “non-ripened”.
Traditionally, Travertine is formed in caves as a result of deposition of calcium carbonate in underground water. This process forms amazing fanciful shapes – stalactites and stalagmites. One of the most spectacular travertine deposits is registered in Badab soort, Iran, where you can find marvelous Travertine terraces with hot springs.
Travertine is a wonderful nature’s gift. Its color range is enormous – from white to dark brown and even scarlet red. The color of the final material depends on multiple factors: temperature, the age of the stone, natural impacts and entering of various particles – sand, silt, dead plants, and animals. Moreover, travertine color is apt to changes after extraction: pale hues become significantly brighter due to oxidation of iron salts.
