Undoubtedly, there is no better natural stone than a beige colour travertine in the Australian Market if you are planning to do an outside paving job. We at Stone Depot call it “Classic Travertine” because it resembles an all-time favorite and classic colour tone loved and accepted by the masses in general. The beige hues on the surface of the stone add depth and character to any project type. When it comes to outside paving jobs whether a swimming pool, patio, alfresco, verandah, courtyard, or garden scaping, Classic Travertine is a great fit.

This blog will work as an encyclopedia of the most amazing natural stone available in 2023 for your paving jobs.

We bet you wonder how this amazing stone is formed. Let’s discuss the same in detail!

Typically, calcium carbonate rapidly precipitates during the formation of travertine. A limestone cave or calcium-rich hot springs can be the starting point of geological development, which is then filtered through porous limestone rocks. The limestone rocks are effectively dissolved by that water, causing them to become saturated. Calcium-rich water may be affected over time by a variety of elements, including changes in water flow rate, water temperature, and pressure decreases that cause the water to produce gaseous carbon dioxide (also known as calcium carbonate). Colonial organisms like bacteria, algae, and mosses frequently protect the outer surface of travertine by coating it and giving it its porous texture as that calcium carbonate recrystallizes.

In its finest form, travertine is white and composed of 99% calcite and 1% gypsum, with traces of organic colours, brown iron compounds, and sulphurous chemicals that are yellow, which gives Classic Travertine Tiles and Pavers its beige colour.
