The Pineider La Grande Bellezza Gemstrones or The Great Beauty, is inspired from gemstones and their unique colors, realistically recreating semiprecious stones that in the past have been imitated using celluloid material. The celluloid has been substituted with a resin based material, with an high percentage of marble dust. The marble dust was added for three reasons: By adding this material, they have made a harder compound to increase the shining of each color with a high gloss polish. The addition increases the specific weight of the material, making it more consistent. Spreading the color range, recreating a marble design from the primers of the resin. The results are incredible! The black color is so deep that any other pen by comparison looks just dark. Lapis Blue or Malachite Green can be mistaken for the real stones, just like all colors of the entire collection.
The Pineider La Grande Belleza fountain pen has a soft 14kt gold flex quill-cut nib and uses cartridges or a converter.
