Visconti Homo Sapiens Lava Color Blizzard fountain pen. Handmade in Florence, Italy from volcanic material, the Homo Sapiens Lava Color Blizzard features an exclusive magnetic closing system along with Visconti’s new in-house 14kt gold oversized nib. The Homo Sapiens Lava Color Blizzard utilizes the same “power filling” mechanism as found in the regular Homo Sapiens fountain pen, giving the user an incredible 1.5 mL of ink capacity.
Like its predecessors, the Lava Color is made from Visconti's well-known and much treasured, lava rock; making the pen virtually unbreakable and very comfortable to write with. The Lava Color collection is the perfect union of catalyzed Mount Etna basaltic lava and colored resin using Visconti's patented methods. This natural combination creates a rugged stone-like feel and texture with rustic natural colors. The collection is launched in three matte finishes: Blizzard (white), Inferno (red) and Sandstorm (tan), each pen is accented by black ruthenium trim. The volcanic material features an anti-stain treatment that protects the pen and prevents ink from depositing on the pen during refilling.
