Marble manufacturer Alacakaya, in addition to making standard sizes, also makes special production following the requirements. Marble is valued using special methods such as ageing, brushing, hammering, burning, acid cracking. One of the most special marbles in the world lying under the mountains, Cherry rot marble is brought to light as a block with difficult work and is mainly sold as a block or semi-finished product.
Cherry rot marble, which entire reserve is located in Alacakaya, is extracted in the mountains determined after a soil survey conducted in the countryside. First, the reserve area, the top of which is cleared and then excavated with construction machines, resulting in Cherry rot marble in shapes called “potatoes”. After two holes were drilled on the underside of the marble structure, which was uncovered by the marble manufacturer Alacakaya, it is cut with “diamond” wires. The lower side of the cut marble is then cut on the sides, leaving it independent of the part in which it is located. Marbles that remain independent are again made, called ‘blocks’ using diamond wire and sent to the factory by trucks for processing.
Marbles that are lowered into the factory of marble manufacturer Alacakaya are placed in block cutting machines and turned into smaller blocks. These blocks are then baked after being covered with a chemical substance. The marbles removed from the oven are cut in appropriate sizes according to the order and varnished and offered for sale.
