A little history:
"Meerschaum is a German word meaning literally, "sea-foam," alluding to the belief that it was the compressed whitecaps of waves, just as it is said in mythology for the goddess of beauty - Aphrodite. Meerschaum is a hydrated magnesium silicate. Magnesium does not make it strong and the hydrogen and oxygen do not make it cool. It is the crystalline structure; the arrangement of the magnesium, silicon, oxygen, and hydrogen atoms in a rigid crystalline structure that makes sepiolite (the clay mineral that is identified by pipe smokers as meerschaum) so good for smoking. The average size of the meerschaum blocks extracted from the clay is about the size of a grapefruit. Meerschaum deposits of the highest quality are found only in one place in the world - in the small city of Eskisehir in central Turkey. And here the deposits are confined to an area of only 4 square miles. Mined with hand tools, and by men trained in this singular family tradition, meerschaum is excavated at depths ranging from 200 to 300 feet".(http://www.meerschaum.com/faq.aspx)
"One of the primary benefits of meerschaum pipes is that the material used to construct the pipe actually allows tobacco smoke to penetrate through the tool. Meerschaum is a mineral that is found in nature. The best quality meerschaum is found in the open plains of Turkey. These porous minerals allow for a cool and dry smoke that cannot be matched by briarwood or conventional pipes. Unlike some popular pipes, meerschaum pipes do not need to be broken in. If you are the type of smoker who prefers to try various types of tobaccos, a meerschaum pipe will allow for a great smoke without retaining any flavor from your previous tobacco" (http://advantagesofmeerschaumpipe.blogspot.com/.,2011)
