Visconti IL Magnifico Nero (Black Marble) Rollerball Pen - #023/188The pen celebrates Lorenzo de' Medici's great passion for art and noble black marble. The pen's body is made of Portoro marble, a kind of marble only found in Italy in the province of La Spezia. Portoro marble is known for its golden streaks that range from deep yellow to honey and is considered the most precious of black marbles.
The intense black color is a gorgeous contrast to its striking golden veins. The marble body is octagonal shaped and inspired by the Baptistery of Florence, formed using specific, high-precision machinery. Visconti's semi-precious stone expert craftsmen manually polish each of the pen's components before assembling them.
Lilies, the symbol of the city of Florence, are meticulously engraved on the aged bronze parts by Visconti's expert Florentine craftsmen. The iconic Ponte Vecchio clip is plated in rose gold and embellished with a black enamel reminiscent of the Portoro marble accenting the body of the pen expertly. The top of the cap is enriched with the ancient coat of arms of the Medici family.
