What's Meerschaum?

Why Meerschaum?
Why Altinok?



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 sea foam.

The 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 level.

There men eventually discovered it and created an incomparable pipe from it. The first record of meerschaum as a pipe dates from ca. 1723.
