Our Travertines: Travertine WalnutWalnut travertine is a typical Tuscan material that is always highly sought after because of its dark colours and its compact structure. These are characteristics that make it suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications and especially for environments subject to heavy traffic. It is often combined with other lighter-coloured materials to obtain particular geometries and plays of light.
The dark and warm tones of the Walnut travertine are much more visible if this is cut perpendicular to the grain because it shows the various layers of sedimentation of calcium carbonate.
If cut parallel to the grain the Walnut travertine has a more uniform colour, always dark tones but with a more soft, almost faded effect. Its excellent technical properties make it suitable for many uses and processes.
