ENGLISH WALNUT Travertine Tile

English Walnut is a beautiful dense material that ranges from a light beige to a dark cafe color. This material has a nice consistent range of color with nice movement. Some pieces will have a combination of colors and others will be more solid in appearance. English Walnut 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 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.
