Ankara is quarried near the city of Denizli, Turkey. This is a sedimentary stone that is formed in hot springs and is composed of calcite calcium carbonate. All travertine stones will have natural cavities, or pits, visible in
the stone that developed when carbon dioxide bubbles became trapped during the formation of the stone. Prior to honing, this travertine is filled with a colored cement to fill in these cavities. There will be noticeable
variations in color and movement between pieces. Therefore, it is important and recommended that a range of this product be viewed before finalizing a purchase. Arizona Tile also offers Ankara as a product in our tumbled program, which will offer a multitude of mosaics and tile sizes that will provide a more unique style to any design. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
