Travertine tile finished - tumbled or brush

Looking to do a kitchen back splash using 4 x 4 (inch) Travertine tile. What's the difference between a tumbled and brush finish? Which is preferred?

The description tells you what the difference is. Still unsure, go into a real tile store, not Lowe's or Home Depot.

Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
