Default Quartz Pens

Here are 2 pens. Both made out of stone.

The stone is brecciated quartz. That just means that at some time the quartz was crushed up and then re-fused back together.

There are some voids in the stone. The brass tube is visible through the clear parts of the quartz, but I think that enhances the pens.

The "fit" is pretty good on the Jr Statesman, but it is really good on the Mistral.

This is the Mistral with Brushed Gold accents.




This is the Jr Statesman Fountain Pen 22kt.





Comments and criticisms are welcome.

Any bets on how many people google brecciated quartz now? :) Beautiful pens!

Very nice pens and the quartz is awesome. My complements! It seems the brass tube would follow the color theme of the quartz. Thanks for sharing.
I turn some acrylic blanks and bought some white painted tubes at Woodcraft. I need to learn how to paint tube and/or blanks for future pens.
