thats a Travertine no doubt. A screen didnt scratch it most likely because it had a topical finish on it. I say that because of the dead even finish. you only get that will travertine when you epoxy fill it, or have a topical finish.

Cleaning and honing in one process

Tumbled Bottocino. I went to talk to this client about something unrelated. when I asked if they would like a price to clean their bathroom floor their reply was "oh does it need it?" Uhhh...yeah!

I didn't see a finish.There was some lippage,i had to work on the picture framing.There was some agglomoration and fragmentation and not many holes in it from the piece i saw in the garage.It was very solid and heavy.They must have just filled the whole thing then polished it.
