Travertino Silver Light COLOR: The Roman Silver Light is an ivory-colored travertine with very delicate details in occasional terracotta-like shadings. The structure of the Roman Silver Light is compact and homogeneous, generally it has no pores or relevant cavities. When it is cross cut, the streaks of color appear in darker shades and usually ondulated, alternating in thickness and intensity.
AVAILABILITY: It is located in our quarry, with average/high availability.
WORKABILITY: It is suitable for all types of processing. Possible realizations: tiles, mosaics, sculptures, statues, vases, plant racks, lamps, tables, chairs, benches, fireplaces, balusters, fences, stairs, columns, fountains, swimming pools, bathrooms, toilets, bidets, shower trays, bath tub, sinks, kitchen countertops, libraries, ornamental carpets, flooring and cladding, coverings, furniture, objects of all kinds, interior/exterior design, etc.
