Silver Vein Cut

Stone Type:
Travertine

Sizes/Thickness:
3/4" (2cm slab)
12"x24"x1/2"


Origin:
Turkey

Finish:
Honed

Silver Vein Cut Travertine is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Turkey. All travertine stones will have natural cavities, or pits, visible in the stone that were developed when carbon dioxide bubbles become trapped during the formation of the stone. This is a sedimentary stone that is formed in hot springs and is composed mainly of calcite calcium carbonate. It is a common characteristic for this stone to have voids in the raw material. Before the stone reaches the honing stages, these voids are filled with a polyester resin. Depending on how deep each void is, the resin may shrink as it dries, which will leave the surface of the filled area slightly lower than the rest. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the slab to ensure safety while handling and fabricating. The tile is clean-back and does not have a mesh backing on it. Arizona Tile also stocks the Carrara Silver Honed slabs in 3/4” and 1-1/4”. The tile comes from different blocks than the slabs so it will not be a 100% match. When using the tile and slab on the same project, customer approval is required. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
