White Turkish Meerschaums Hand-carved Turkish Meerschaums are a must for any collector!

Meerschaum is a rare, sturdy material mined from the shores and sea-beds of Turkey. Meerschaum is a word of German origin meaning sea foam. Meerschaum’s natural pores filter tobacco tar and allow for a clean, smooth smoke every time. Don’t smoke too much though. While Meerschaum is a sturdy substance, over-smoking it can cause irreparable damage. Each meerschaum piece is hand-carved and comes from Turkey.
