2007 - Pertrified Wood
Forests from aeons ago were buried under water, lava, or soil. In the course of a crystallization process that may have taken up to 360 million years, the wood became petrified: a preliminary stage of the semi-precious stones chalcedony or agate. With great precision the pieces of gemstone have been cut, ground, and polished by the hand of a master craftsman. Each fountain pen becomes a unique work of art.
