Basaltic lava turns out to be a near-ideal material for pen bodies - sturdy, heat resistant, and comfortable in the hand. Visconti's lava body Homo Sapiens pens have become a favorite for many. The Magma adds fiery red metallic trim, evocative of molten lava during an eruption.

Beyond the unique use of materials, this is also a highly versatile everyday writing instrument, provided with your choice of Visconti nib. Visconti's high capacity Power Fill system allows the use of any bottled fountain pen ink, and the pen comes attractively packaged, making this a terrific choice as a very special gift item.
