FANTASTICO Travertine Tile

Fantastico is a beautiful travertine that offers almost every color of the rainbow. This is a wonderful selection for those you like vibrant color. This is a nice dense material with a lot of movement that can range dramatically in color from piece to piece. Fantastico is an amazing mixture of golds, reds, browns, yellows and greys with some black veining as well. It is not uncommon to see a lot of onyx present in this material also, which gives this stone incredible beauty and character. Fantastico is a travertine that is 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.
