Collection: Visconti Homo Sapiens Crystal Dream

A Dream Come True

The Homo Sapiens Crystal Dream is an exceptional fountain pen, showcasing all the unique benefits of the original, award-winning Homo Sapiens with several notable upgrades and modifications.

The Crystal Ink Chamber: The most discernible modification to the body of the pen is the addition of a large transparent window made from crystal acrylic resin. A large section of lava has been cut out of the pen’s body and replaced with a piece of clear crystal acrylic tube, transforming the pen into a demonstrator with a unique appearance and identity. This 'oversize' window offers the user a view of stored ink inside the pen and the pens 'double reservoir' power filling system.

The Double Reservoir: The original Homo Sapiens featured Visconti's 'single reservoir' power filling system. The Crystal Dream is upgraded to Visconti's patented 'double reservoir' power filler, a vacuum filling system that is easy to use and has considerable benefits. Patented in 1998, this is arguably the most advanced filling system ever developed in fountain pen history. The user can fill the pen with the equivalent of 10 cartridges of ink, and thanks to the two reservoirs, prevents ink from leaking during air travel.

The final change is the small Crystal Ring around the pen’s grip section. Metal has been replaced with crystal acrylic resin, offering a view of stored ink in the pen’s second smaller ink reservoir.

As with the original Homo Sapiens, the Crystal Dream is made from volcanic lava rock making the pen virtually unbreakable, naturally hygroscopic and very comfortable to write with. All trims are made from natural bronze and the cap closes with Visconti's patented 'hook safe lock'. The Homo Sapiens Crystal Dream is a must-have for every Visconti pen enthusiast.

Available as a fountain pen only, featuring Visconti's buttery smooth 18kt gold nib in rose to match the color of the pen's trim. The Crystal Dream is available in EF, F, M, B and Stub.
