Meerschaum, from the former Ottoman Arab Gallen, Turkish Lületaschi today, comes to our world only in Turkey.
Eskischehir at the place, which lies in Central Anatolia, there were billions of years before even a lake, which was swallowed by an earthquake. Here, the magnesium silicate is stored under great pressure under the earth.
The meerschaum pipe, which is known mainly, will bring even mentioned in the story of Wilhelm Busch, Max and Moritz, where they stuff a small blow the whistle of the teacher Lämpel with black powder and burst ...
Meerschaum was discovered 300 years ago and has been with the winch pulley by hand first, then later by motor, drawn up in buckets, then dug up.
