Vulcanite is characterized as a dark-colored variety of India rubber that has been subjected to vulcanization. It also called hard rubber. A common material used for the stem on both mass-produced and hand-made pipes.

Some pipe makers consider it preferable to lucite because it is softer and therefore more comfortable in the mouth. The disadvantage over lucite is that it is less durable. It is favored by some English and Danish makers. Traditionally, the best vulcanite comes from Germany; however, many disagree on this point.
