Explosive volcanic eruptions and the obsidian formed from the cooling lava prompted early humans to challenge nature, trying to forge tools to hunt and protect themselves for their own survival. With the same creative momentum, Visconti gave modern humans a writing instrument crafted from the same primitive volcanic rock. Hence, a great ancient tool that enabled humans to write their history was turned into a real iconic piece with a perfectly balanced design.
A combination of basaltic lava from Mount Etna, catalyzed with nylon resin according to a secret process, generates an unbreakable, hygroscopic, velvet-like compound, achieving a revolutionary result for the world of writing instruments.
This pen is available in fountain pen with Visconti’s patented double reservoir power-filling system. The Crystal Dream is accented with solid bronze trims.
This pen may be personalized using Visconti's "My Pen System" and the clip on each pen is unique to Visconti and reveals the origin of the brand, as it takes inspiration from the Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence, Italy.
