We are delighted to announce the launch of the highly anticipated Homo Sapiens Lava Color collection, Visconti's latest addition to the iconic Homo Sapiens series. Visconti re-interprets their flagship pen line with color, a more modern image and a new in-house 14kt gold nib. 

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.
Each finish is available in fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint. The rollerball and fountain pen feature an exclusive magnetic closing system which makes opening and closing the pen effortless. The ballpoint operates with a twist. Identical to previous Homo Sapiens models, the fountain pen fills with Visconti's patented power filling system.
 
'In-house' 14kt Gold Nib
The new collection introduces a first from Visconti, a new in-house, 14kt gold oversized nib. The new nib has been engraved with a more contemporary design, but in keeping with tradition Visconti continue with a crescent moon shaped breather hole, a distinctive feature of Visconti's precious nibs. Each nib is hand polished and entirely made in-house: The nib, feed and housing; consequently the entire pen is produced in Florence. Each nib is plated in black ruthenium to match the color of the pens trim. Available in EF, F, M, B, and Stub widths.

 

Double Reservoir: The Crystal Dream has Visconti's patented 'double reservoir' power filler, a vacuum filling system that is easy to use and has considerable benefits. The user is able to fill the pen with the equivalent of 10 cartridges of ink, and thanks to the two reservoirs, prevents ink from leaking during air travel.


Crystal Ring: The final change is the small ring around the pens grip section. Metal has been replaced with crystal acrylic resin, offering a view of stored ink in the pens second smaller ink reservoir.
