Charasteristics of Travertine
Travertine is highly reactive with rain and acidic rain. Travertine is extremely porous. The water can go inside the stone, but can not exit the stone, which can cause the stone to break when the stone is exposed to frost. Also, the acids of the rain can cause erosions because the stone dissolves and chips.
Fun detail, the building of the Colosseum in Rome partially consists of Travertine stones. The building of the Sacre-Coeur in Paris, is entirely made of travertine stones.
