The biggest misconception about travertine is that the quality is less if the cavities are more. Travertine should have even cavities up to 15mm diameter evenly throughout. What the consumer should look for as a negative is a lack of cavities as this can indicate the presence of clays and loose materials. They should also look into the cavity- you should see a clean crystalline structure in the travertine paver.
