Marble from Turkey may not have the same cache as, say, Italian marble. But if you’re looking for a beautiful, quality marble product at better value, there are some Turkish selections you may want to consider. Did you know that Turkey is a leading supplier of the world’s marble and travertine? Just like Italy, Turkey has a rich history of stone quarrying. The country provided material for statues and monuments for even the ancient Greeks and Romans. Natural stone has been one of Turkey’s main exports for thousands of years, and there is still plenty to be found. According to the Turkish government, more than 30-percent of the world’s reserves of marble are in Turkey. Most of it comes from an area west of the 31st Parallel and south of Istanbul. White and travertine are the best-known natural stone products, but the country is a source of granite, limestone, and onyx too.
Travertine has been used in Turkey throughout its long history. In almost all the Roman settlements inside Turkey, Travertine was widely used in different applications. Cities like Hierapolis, near Denizli, were built completely with Travertine. The Roman engineers often used local building materials in their constructions and Travertine became a common building material. In the modern age, hundreds, if not thousands, of projects have been done using Travertine. Travertine is different from limestone as there are significant differences both in texture and molecular structure. Limestone tends to be softer as compared to travertine. Travertine has holes, which is rare in limestone. Travertine can be produced both in vein cut and cross cut, which means that visually they can be very different stones. As a stone that contains natural holes it is strongly recommended that travertine be used in the filled format. After installation an appropriate chemical is frequently used to seal the surface.
