Roman Travertine Silver Marthe

Travertine Silver Marthe, also known in the far East as Blue travertine, belongs to the categories of the striato (silver) travertines. It is only Vein cut and has astraight vein pattern. Travertine Silver Marthe is an essentially light beige with blue horizontal veins. The structure shows its compactness and homogeneity. Generally there are no significant pores or cavities. Extracted directly from the travertine quarries in Tivoli, Rome, Italy. The availability of blocks, slabs and cut to sizes is good. Travertine Silver Marthe is easily and often used for floors, cladding and kitchens tops. The finishes can be honed, polished, tumbled or saw cut.
