Vein Cut Stone tiles
Vein cut is not a finish but rather a direction of cutting a stone tile.
The most popular method of cutting some types of stone tiles, particularly Travertine tiles, is cross cutting. This means that the slabs are cut horizontally and across the layers of sediment. This gives the gentle swirls of colour that are normally seen in Travertine tiles. Vein cutting means that the slab is cut vertically along the layers of sediment. This gives the stone tile a gentle striped effect and creates a modern, dramatic look.
