Patera Chiseled Lyon Pattern
16 sq ft. per pattern
The Patera Pattern is composed of Ankara Classic travertine, which is quarried near the city of Denizli, Turkey. The chiseled edges of the pieces in the pattern, along with the unfilled surface, give this pattern an old-world, rustic appearance. The chiseled edges of this pattern can make the grout joint appear much larger if not wiped clean during installation. So, it is important to ensure that the edges are cleaned thoroughly after grouting.
Ankara Classic is quarried near the city of Denizli, Turkey. This sedimentary stone is formed in hot springs and is composed of calcite calcium carbonate. All travertine stones will have natural cavities, or pits, visible in the stone that were developed when carbon dioxide bubbles became trapped during the formation of the stone. The classic version of a stone will identify it as having more extreme and distinct characteristics. Classic travertine products will have larger, more prominent pits, or fill and a higher variation of color between pieces. Therefore, it is important and recommended that a range of this product be viewed before finalizing a purchase.Piece to piece variation in shade or color are inherent in all natural stone products; therefore, when installing natural stone tile, it is recommended to mix tiles from several boxes at a time during installation to achieve the best range of color. As natural stone products, it is recommended that these be sealed to extend their longevity. Please note: The above sample of the Lyon pattern is not intended to be used as an installation tool. Please consult your local showroom for a product pattern sheet.
