The Visconti Homo Sapiens Volcano Lava Black with Bronze Trim Ballpoint Pen . Visconti has successfully produced a material containing over 50% pure basaltic lava, catalysed together with resin in a formula that is patented and obviously kept secret. Homo-sapiens is made with natural bronze like the antique formula that does not require plating or protection treatments which alter its original almost pink colour.

Virtually unbreakable: It has a high degree of resilience. Flame-proof: Visconti lava has a resistance to heat of over 100°C Slightly hygroscopic: allowing it to absorb hand sweat during use. Dense: to the touch, allowing the best possible finger-relaxing grip. Value: the 23 ct 950/1000 palladium nib is the purest nib. It contains 95% pure palladium against 75% pure gold in the 18 ct nib and 58% gold in the 14 ct nib. Palladium actually melts at much higher temperatures than gold: 1552°C against 1063°C. Flexibility and Memory: Palladium has the best possible properties for any type of writing, enhanced by some 30% compared to the same nib in 18 ct gold. Material: Basaltic Lava from the Etna Volcano Metallic parts: 100% bronze Packaging: Visconti pen case with polishing cloth. Ballpoint recommended refills: A 38, A49 Filling System: High vacuum power filler
