Travertine Market: Overview
Travertine is a terrestrial sedimentary rock with crystalline-texture and composed of calcium carbonate (CaCO3), which is a form of limestone deposited by hot mineral springs. It is formed by the precipitation of carbonate minerals and its porosity due to the presence of organisms such as macrophytes, bryophytes, and algae. Natural color of travertine is white; however, travertine is also found in shades of cream, tan, and rust. Presence of iron carbonate provides travertine with a red color. This natural stone is primarily formed at the mouth of hot springs or in limestone caves.Until the 1980s, Italy was the key supplier of travertine and had a monopoly on the market. Guidonia Montecelio and Tivoli are famous quarries in Italy. The word travertine originates from the Italian travertine, which is derived from the Latin word tiburtinus. The stone has been quarried since the time of ancient Romans and was primary employed as building material. Currently, Turkey, Mexico, Peru, and Iran are significant suppliers of travertine. There are two-three small producers in the U.S.

Travertine Market: Key Segments
Travertine provides a distinct weathered and rustic look. This porous stone is available in two variants, filled and unfilled. The filled travertine is smoother, more durable, and has a more modern look as compared to the natural porous ones. The finishing of the tile is also important as it defines the quality. Honed, polished, brushed, and tumbled are the four types of finishes that are applied to travertine. Polished travertine is bright, shiny, and very smooth. It reflects light and is considered equivalent to marble. However, polished travertine is quite slippery, especially when wet. Honed travertine, is a preferred option for floor and counter top applications. The surface is polished, but not to a glossy bright extent, and is left matte, thus making it non-slippery. This type of finish is similar to the natural look of the stone. Tumbled and brushed travertine look similar to each other. The tiles with such a finish have muted colors and are almost non-reflective. Tumbled travertine has a distinctive weathered and antiqued look.
