The Noble Meerschaum
The noble meerschaum is unique among pipes. Its mysterious
properties make it a perfect smoke and, at the same time, a
work of art; a pipe highly prized by the connoisseur and
beginning smoker alike. Meerschaum is a German word meaning
mineral itself is the fossilized shells of tiny sea
creatures that fell to the ocean floor over 50 million years
ago, there to be covered and compressed over the ages by
layer upon layer of silt. Profound movements in the earths
crust raised the creamy white stone of meerschaum above sea
There men eventually discovered it and created an
incomparable pipe from it. The first record of meerschaum as
a pipe dates from ca. 1723.
