This thread seems to suggest that Meerschaum pipes don't come with a lot of information about their material and the various grades. I'm sure some Meerschaum fans eventually learn how to get information on each pipe, but retailers don't seem to convey much at online sites and at shops. You might be told "things," but it all seems uncertain. Buyer be ... mystified.

Yes, pressed meerschaum pipes will color. Though they will not color as fast as a block meerschaum pipe. Some people don't have an issue with pressed meerschaum pipes, but I definitely recommend block meerschaum pipes.
