Catlinite-Pipestone Pipes

All pipes are made by myself, Alan Monroe.  I am a fifth generation pipe maker and an enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Tribe, here in South Dakota.  My pipes can be found worldwide.

All the stone comes from my quarry pit at the National Monument and Shrine, located in Pipe Stone, Minnesota.  All pipes are made from a solid block of carved Catlinite.  After the pipe is made it is sanded, wet sanded, and boiled in bee's wax. After a quick dip in cold water, the pipe is buffed to a high shine. Each pipe is fully functional and ready for smoking.
