Meerschaum translated from German means "Sea Foam". This name reflects the meerschaum qualities of light weight and white color. It is one of the most porous substances found in nature and will not burn out. Therefore, it is considered as the perfect material for a cool, dry smoke. Unlike briar, meerschaum is a mineral (Hydrous Magnesium Silicate). Here you will find our Meerschaum pipes by Servi .
