Meerschaum Pipes are recorded as far back as 1723, and has been considered a prized material since. Also know as Sepiolite, meerschaum is a mineral which can sometimes be found floating in the Black Sea. It's perfect for providing a cool, dry and flavourful smoke.
The porous nature of meerschaum draws moisture and tobacco tar deep into the stone. When smoked, meerschaum pipes gradually change colour, turning shades of yellow, orange, red, and amber from the base on up.
