When polished there’s a richer look and the colors pop, also polished travertine’s glossy finish reflects light from the room. The three grades of travertine are: Premium which has a small amount of filler, standard more filler and commercial has lots of filler.
Another interesting fact about travertine are the cut types which are: Vain with linear pattern, fleuri random, cross cut and sometimes circular.
