Travertine

Iran Travertine is one of the most frequently used Iranian stones in modern architecture and is commonly used as a decorative material for interiors, both for walls and flooring.

Travertine is an interesting natural stone, generally harder than limestone but softer than marble. It is a kind of limestone deposited by springs, or more precisely travertine is a calcareous rock, i.e., composed almost entirely of calcium carbonate. It takes its name from "Lapis Tiburtinus", the stone deposited around the Tibur river that was widely used in Roman times, including building massive walls whose remains can still be seen in Rome. Travertine is a fairly enduring material not very sensitive to weather, and can in fact be considered one of the longest-lasting despite its porous, nonresistant appearance.

Iranian Travertine comes in a large variety of colours. Most common types of travertine are Beige, Light Beige Super white, off-white or ivory, Silver and Brown. Other popular colours are yellow or gold and red.

Travertine is mined in three major areas, Iran, Italy and Turkey. Iran is the only area that produces Super White Travertine and Red Travertine which is called Persian Red Soraya . Both Iran and Turkey produce Yellow Travertine. Iranian yellow travertine is richerin colour and typically more uniform than yellow travertine mined in Turkey.
