The Travertine Classic is probably one of the most famous Travertines in the world. It is a beige/light brown coloured natural stone, with slight variations in terms of beige colour tones. It can present some darker shaded areas, as well as some white coloured ones. It is known for its natural holes, which is part of the Travertine structure.
The Travertine Classic can be mostly found in two forms:
– Cross-Cut: where the slabs are cut agains the vein. This gives a surface with novein but instead a surface composed by shades with different tones.
– Vein-Cut: where the slabs are cut in favour of the natural vein of this stone. This is the most popular type of Travertine Classic and it presents a well defined parallel vein.
