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.

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.

● 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.
