ANCIENT CASTLE Travertine Slab
Ancient Castle colors run from a light beige to a medium brown with undertones of gold, rose, grey and black veining. This material is like a Walnut with more color in it. Ancient Castle is a travertine quarried and produced in Turkey.
Travertine is a calcium carbonate sedimentary stone, which is formed around hot springs and through deposition in wet caves, with carbon-dioxide saturated water breaking down calcium carbonate and redepositing it. Travertine usually contains a mixture of minerals from the environment where it formed, along with the calcium carbonate, and it has a very coarse texture with lots of small holes created by air bubbles and living organisms which were trapped in the rock.
Shading and veining of natural stone has a variety of natural characteristics and are like a fingerprint….no two pieces are alike.
