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. 



Piece to piece variation in shade or color are inherent in all natural stone products; therefore, when installing natural stone tile, it is recommended to mix tiles from several boxes at a time during installation to achieve the best range of color. As natural stone products, it is recommended that these be sealed to extend their longevity.
