These holes are often filled with synthetic resins or cements that usually do not polish very well which often causes polished travertine to look inconsistent in appearance.

Critical to know

It’s critical to know what to expect with natural stone prior to making a selection.
1. All natural stone has inherent characteristics; it is natural; and therefore always imperfect. (Or perfectly imperfect, depending upon your view.)
2. Some materials are easier to maintain than others. Be careful to consider these details prior to choosing your material.
3. The appearance of natural stone will always patina over time. Without exception.
4. All natural stone should be set properly, sealed and maintained. This requires a well-researched setting, sealing and maintenance specification in order to avoid surprises.
