On the negative side: what the hell for? On the positive side: seems like it would color nicely. On the serious side, I don't think raw blocks of meerschaum are generally available on the world market. The Turkish government saw to that. And you would need a really large chunk. Or am I missing something? scratch

Yup from my understanding difficult at best to nearly impossible to obtain. Occasionally you will find old and i do mean old carve your own meerschaum kits. Unfortunately those will already be drilled and have a stem attached to them. Perhaps soapstone would work for what you want to do? Easily obtained, easily carved, food safe, slightly less fragile.

How about trying pottery? If you don't want to turn your own coffee mug, you can always buy the greenwear, paint it and have it kiln dried.
