Travertine Stone Countertops

Travertine is a sedimentary rock which has been highly affected by the forces of underground springs and subterranean rivers. Mostly made of calcite, travertine stone is the middle stage of limestone evolving into marble. It is a very porous material, with holes/pits that were generated either by gasses trapped by the sediments or by water plants that were trapped inside the formation and then decomposed. Travertine countertops are highly susceptible to heat, scratching, staining, and acidity, and is not recommended for kitchen projects.
