The Visconti Homo Sapiens writing instruments material in this pen is as antique and natural as the world: lava from the Etna volcano in south Italy. It has characteristics that render it unique in the manufacturing of writing instruments. Visconti has successfully produced a material containing pure basaltic lava, catalyzed together with resin in a formula whose characteristics practically transforms it into a material perfectly fit to writing instruments.
The Lava material is a natural material; when daily used, the pen keeps its original dark grey color. If the pen is not used for a while or exposed to strong light it can become light grey. This is a certification of a real bio material.
