Travertines are very similar to marbles, and they undergo the same formation processes. One of the main features of travertines is their porous structures. Ivory or light colors are among the most preferred travertine colors in home decoration and construction fields.
These cream-shaded colors are generally referred to as classic travertines. Besides these colors, you can also find silver, gray, rose, wood, red, yellow, and walnut color options on the market. Although these natural stones are popular in the decoration industry, one of them is far more popular than others and it is called Denizli travertines.
As being the leading marble, limestone, and marble exporter of Turkey, we would like to share some our works about these natural stones but especially the Denizli travertines.

What Are Denizli Travertines?
Denizli is one of the Turkish cities which is famous for its natural stones but especially travertines. Pamukkale, one of the most famous tourist destinations, is also located in this city. Denizli travertines, or Denizli stone.
Denizli Stones are sediments deposited as a result of hydrothermal waters, which are rich in terms of calcium-bicarbonate. In general, these travertines are mined in the Kocabas, Yenicekent, Golemezli, Karateke, and Gurlek regions of the city. Moreover, Pamukkale formations are still ongoing today.
Here are some of the distinctive features of Denizli travertines:
● They are easily distinguished from other travertines in Turkey and the rest of the world with different shades of cream and brown. If you often use travertines, you can easily notice this difference with your bare eyes. ● They have characteristic linear structures, which are also known as a waterway, that can be seen in perpendicular sections of the blocks. ● They have millimetric pores along the waterways and it is possible to eliminate these pores by filling method if desired. ● They do not include high amounts of plant residues such as sedge and reed in their structures. ● Travertines mined in the Golemezli region are mostly onyx type and they typically have green and honey colors. ● Travertines mined in the Yenicekent region are in a darker color and offer reddish and brown shades. ● According to chemical analyzes, stable carbon isotope values of Denizli travertines provide more positive results. This makes them unique when compared to the other travertine types both in Turkey and in the world.

Below, you can find some of the finish types that can directly affect the surface of our travertines.
● Filling – Filling is an application that allows us to fill the pores available on the travertines. A special travertine cement or ready-made fillers are used in the process to ensure a smooth and water-resistant surface. ● Honing – Honing is an application that is used to transform natural stone surfaces into a semi-matte state. Honed surfaces are neither matte nor glossy. ● Antiqued – As you can guess, antiqued finish type allows the surface of natural stones to achieve an old look. Various methods are used for this process to achieve the best results. ● Rock Face – This application allows us to provide a more natural look for natural stones. In addition to this, it allows us to align adjacent natural stone pieces for a uniform look. ● Tumbled – This application allows the natural stones to have curvy edges so that we can achieve a weathered look. In general, it is preferred for pavers, but you can also prefer tumbled Denizli travertines as wall coverings.
