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. The volcanic material features an anti-stain treatment that protects the pen and prevents ink from depositing on the pen during refilling.
The newest color is a rich blue hue that is accented by black ruthenium trims. Blue Ultramarine is a pigment derived from crushing the semi-precious stone lapis lazuli. This color has been coveted since its creation and been used in many paintings and manuscripts since ancient times.
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.
Nib Material: 18K black ruthenium plated gold
Filling Mechanism: Double Reservoir Power Filler
