Fresh Magma fountain pen

This new pen material was developed through a custom request from a very special person. She suggested a combination of a dark red, almost a garnet, with gold, and a touch of black. We were all thrilled with the result and when she described it looking like fresh magma, we asked her to do the honour of naming this material.

It really does resemble magma roiling up from deep inside the earth. With its inclusions of obsidian-black, streaks of red-hot lava and globules of gold, this pen seems as if it must have a rough texture, yet it is glass-smooth.

This particular pen is in a standard Dafoe model, though we could also make it in one of our other models. Please feel free to let us know if there is a different shape that you would prefer.
