Graf von Faber Castell Limited Edition Amber Fountain Pen POY 2004
Amber has long inspired the imagination of mankind. Thus, antique myths tell the story of how, after the death of the solar god's son Phaeton, his mourning sisters transformed into black poplars and their tears into amber. There is a core of truth in those legends. Approximately 45 million years ago, subtropical forests covered the contemporary Baltic States. Tree resins dripped onto the ground, deposited there, consolidated and transformed to amber.
Inspired by the Amber Room in Zarskoye Selo near St Petersburg, the Graf von Faber Castell Limited Edition Pen Of Year 2004 Amber Fountain Pen is made with platinised rings and adored by amber under the skilled craftsmanship of Boris Igdalov, who personally took care of the creation of this Graf von Faber Castell Limited Edition Amber Fountain Pen POY 2004 fountain pen.
Amber’s mystical powers are known to many in the various religious belief of healing. Holding an Amber pen provides that peace, calmness and tranquility not seen in any other materials.
Highly recommended for users who like precious minerals, bright vibrant colours and who believed in the magical powers of the Amber.
