It's on a Atlas pen from Woodcraft. I'm having a tough time taking a picture well enough to do this blank justice. The colors and the glitter effects of the Pearlex are absolutely beautiful. I'm going to continue trying to get some better pictures to post for you, I'm just going to have to find the right lighting and setup to hopefully at least give it a chance of showing its true color and brilliance.
Even without bigger pics I can see that you've done a beautiful job with it, I can see some sticking effects on the coconut husk from stabilizing it blue, the resin contrast is also pretty.

Thank you very much for being part of this "offer" and for making the pen...!

Cheers
George
Thanks George, I did my best on turning that and It turned out better than I could have ever hoped for. I wish I could truly express what you mean to me and others here. Because of you, I've learned massive amounts about different woods, that I probably wouldn't have learned anywhere else. Between you and Edgar, and of course many others, but mainly you two, I've learned more about not only different woods here locally, but about different woods from all over the earth and that's a good thing. I don't know if you realize how much of resource that you and Merissa are, but it's hard to find treasures such as yourselves. Many people take a lifetime looking for the treasure that you bring, and many people would fail to find it, if it weren't for people such as yourself. I certainly for one, would be a worse off if I had never made you as a friend. You've made my hobby so much fun that I really can't explain it.
The only thing I can do to show it, is to say thank you. Without you and others such as yourself I would have never realized all of the beautiful things I could make. I know this is sappy, and I'm sure it is. That's ok, I'm good with it being that. I think that it needed to be said and I don't think I'm the only one to think it. So anyone that thinks otherwise can kiss me where I sit if they don't like it.

G'day David, Wow mate, I had to call Merissa to ready your strong and meaningful words that worth more to us that you can ever imagine.

Such a beautiful sentiment and very well expressed, Merissa and I we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, this will be something that we will remember for many years to come, thank you.

On the other hand, is rewarding to read you manage to turn it into a fun exercise, one that you kept pushing to limits you didn't know you had, I'm most thankful to be responsible for that, according to your own words.

I just don't know what could ever be a more powerful statement/sentiment than this, your words of appreciation are all the fuel I/we need to keep going.

Thank you...!

Cheers
George
