TURKISH STONES

TURKISH STONES Turkey, situated on the Alpine Belt, where the world’s richest marble deposits are found, is among the world’s oldest natural stone producers with 4 thousand years of production history that starts with the Marmara Island. With the Marmara and Aegean Regions at the forefront, almost in all geographical regions from the Thrace to the Eastern Anotolia, more than 250 different colors textures and patterns of natural stones are found that are of a quality capable of gaining appreciation in the world markets. Among these, granite, onyx, limestone, basalt, andesite slate stone, and diabase are types of stones that are leading in production with marble and travertine. In Turkey, which is today one of the important countries in the natural stone sector with more than a thousand large and small quarries, 1500 factories and 750 workshops, approximately 50 percent of the production consists of marble, 45 percent on travertine and the remaining 5 percent other natural stones. From 2016 to 2017, Turkish natural stone export has increased by 22 percent in quantity and 13 percent in value annually which is equal to 7,989 million tons and 2,046 billion dollars. The most important subsectors are processed marble and travertine, marble and travertine row rowblocks and semi-processed marble and travertine consecutively.
