Description Visconti announces 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 Homo Sapiens pen line with color, and a more modern image.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 Homo Sapiens Lava Collection ballpoint in Sandstorm has a matte finish that is accented by black ruthenium trim. The volcanic material features an anti-stain treatment that protects the pen.The twist-action mechanism is smooth and easy to use, and the refill glides effortlessly across the page.
