Meerschaum

Meerschaum is a classic pipe-making material.  Meerschaum is the German word for "sea foam," because this soft mineral starts off as just that.  Floating on the Black Sea as foam, this material eventually forms deposits on shore where it dries and can be dug up, cut into blocks and carved into beautiful pipes.

A feature of Meerschaum pipes is their patina.  As you smoke your Meerschaum it will darken with use, at first yellowing like ivory, and eventually darkening and marbling...though this might take several decades!  The darker the Meerschaum, the more valuable it becomes.
