TURKEY AND MARBLE
Due to its geological structure, Turkey possesses a wealthy potential in terms of natural stones. According to current data there are 4 billion m3 of exploitable marble, 2,8 billion m3 of exploitable travertine, and 1 billion m3 of granite reserves. According to these figures, Turkey holds close to 40% of the total natural stone reserves in the world.
Researches in Turkey shows that there are approximately 650 different color and texture types of marble in our country. Our primary natural stone products are (all with various colors and patterns) crystalline limestone (marble), limestone, onyx, conglomerate, breccia, and rocks with magmatic origin (granite, syenite, diabase, diorite, antigorite, etc.).
The most well-known marble types of Turkey in the international market are as follows: Süpren, Elazig Cherry, Aksehir Black, Manyas White, Bilecik Beige, Tiger Skin, Denizli Travertine, Aegean Claret, Milas Lilac, Gemlik Diabase and Afyon Sugar.
In the marble sector there are 2.560 marble quarries, 1.500 small and medium-sized factories, and 7.500 workshops, employing close to 250.000 people. Almost all of the production is carried out by the private sector. The annual production of natural stones in Turkey was around 5 million m3 in 2014.
