Visconti turned to the Etna volcano to bestow the virtually unbreakable body to this incredibly long lasting writing instrument. The material contains over 50% lava and is mixed with resin to create a fantastically dense, slightly hygroscopic, heat resistant structure that is then polished to provide a beautiful finish that requires no overlay. The bronze accents take their inspiration from the Bronze Age, and their simplistic design sets off the deep basaltic lava perfectly. Ruthenium accents and a Ruthenium ring engraved with ‘Homo Sapiens’. The Homo Sapiens fountain pen has as standard Visconti’s 18K nib.
