WELCOME TO THE LAND OF MARBLE
'Since the eve of time, the
Balkan's have always been marble's cradle. The first quarries in historic memory were those of the Aegean and of the Marmara Isle: in fact according to a wide-spread theory, the actual
name marble, seems to originate from a mutation of the word Marmara. Therefore, Turkey's traditions in this sector, in addition to those of first manual sawing, that are archeologically
documented, are long standing. What is more, the great works of classical antiquity and of the imperial era, clearly highlight the role that marble and stone have played in the
Ottoman art and architecture.
Today, following a rather long stagnant period, Turkey has returned
to playing a major role at the foreffront of the stone world' , Stone Development in Turkey, Giornale del Marno, International Stone Magazine GDM 224 Marzo Aprile, 2000.
With a potential of 14 billion tons of reserves, Turkey's world
leading role in the international marble market apparent. Currently, 1.2 milion tons of marble is quarried annually. This places Turkey in the top 10 marble producing countries in the
world while the reserves guarantee to further the production for 10,000 more years. Coupled with a wide range of marble selectionTurkey has to offer to the international market,
Turkey further enhances her role as a consistent leader in the marble world.
