Visconti Homo Sapiens Lava Color Terra di Siena Fountain Pen
HOMO SAPIENS LAVA COLOR FOUNTAIN PEN
The Homo Sapiens Lava Color is the first collection to showcase Visconti’s new 14kt gold nib made in-house. This vibrant and colorful writing instrument is a re-interpretation of the iconic Homo Sapiens collection. The Lava Color is the perfect addition to the Homo Sapiens family, an absolute must-have for color and nature lovers.
The pen is made of a mixture of colored resin and Mount Etna basaltic lava, the Visconti’s well-known and highly valued material, made following their secret formula.
The material in this pen is as antique as the world: lava from the Etna volcano. Visconti lava is: Virtually unbreakable, it has a high degree of resilience. Flameproof, Visconti lava has a resistance to heat of over 100°C. Slightly hygroscopic, allowing to absorb hand sweat during use. The Homo Sapiens Lava Color is made of a combination of this high valued material and colored resin made following a secret formula. The process of catalysing the lava material with coloured resin is very complex but the final look of the writing instrument is unique and makes the collection stand out from other Homo Sapiens editions. This new edition also has an anti-stain treatment that protects the pen and prevents ink from depositing on the pen during the refilling phase.
Basaltic lava is very hygroscopic and it easily absorbs moisture. To prevent ink stains, the pen has been coated with a special anti-stain treatment.
Unlike the classic Homo Sapiens Lava collection, the Lava Color features a magnetic lock closing system which makes opening and closing it effortless.
