Visconti is delighted to announce the latest addition to their Homo Sapiens demonstrator collection - the Demo Stones. Vibrant transparent resins meet the iconic design of the Homo Sapiens collection; a natural encounter with light, adding transparency, depth and fluidity.

Three demonstrator colors were selected by Visconti, each inspired by the beauty of the most sought-after colored gemstones; Ruby, sapphire and emerald. Each pen is then enriched by a semi-precious stone in the top of the pen cap: green agate, blue agate, and red carnelian stones, to emulate the three inspirational gem colors of the pen bodies.
Each Demo Stone is designed, made and polished in Visconti's Florentine workshop. The barrel and cap are made from turned acrylic resin and carefully hand-polished, both inside and out, with special felt tools, to guarantee an excellent result.

Visconti's ability to make beautiful demonstrator pens is renowned around the world. Crafting the Demo Stones from transparent resin was not purely an aesthetic choice but also a way to reveal the beating heart of the Visconti demonstrator pen, the double reservoir power filling system.  
 
'In-house' 14kt Gold Nib
The new collection introduces a first from Visconti, a new in-house, 14kt gold oversized nib. The new nib has been engraved with a more contemporary design, but in keeping with tradition Visconti continue with a crescent moon shaped breather hole, a distinctive feature of Visconti's precious nibs. Each nib is hand polished and entirely made in-house: The nib, feed and housing; consequently the entire pen is produced in Florence. Each nib is plated in black ruthenium to match the color of the pens trim. Available in EF, F, M, B, and Stub widths.

 

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.


Crystal Ring: The final change is the small ring around the pens grip section. Metal has been replaced with crystal acrylic resin, offering a view of stored ink in the pens second smaller ink reservoir.
