Crystal Roller Pens
From artist Luis Alberto, these writing instruments are masterfully created from a single stone. For those who take their manifest journaling seriously, these pens made from natural crystal are unlike anything you’ve written with before. Learn more about the pens in the note below. Pens take 15 days to create after purchase.
“25 years ago, I was attending the Tucson Gem & Mineral show in Arizona; on display were some incredible natural rock crystal specimens from Brazil which made my heart beat fast. I could see the light entering the crystal and played through its different angles and at same time I saw this incredible natural formation which resembled a city full of translucent naturally balanced skyscrapers. Since that day, this mineral has always fascinated me.
Some zones of rock crystal are so immaculate and completely transparent that the eye sees straight through them and seemingly on toward infinity. Others are “occupied”, enclosing frost or fine filaments of mist whose ondulations catch the eye. A rock crystal represents at once both turbulence and limpidity, and its dual, even ambiguous nature is the very essence of the minerals magic. It combines up all that is finite yet never ending, instantaneous though eternal; both heat and cold, immobile yet changeable. This is why George Sand said that it represents the limit between “the Visible and the Invisible”. When I look at rock crystal, I tell myself that it is the very image of life itself, radiant with light in spite of some stormy passages.
Rock crystal is colourless quartz with astonishing inclusions running through it and since the physical aspect of these inclusions is totally random, it goes without saying that no two crystal pens will ever be identical, even if they are sculpted in the same fashion. Each of them leads its own life, and what makes them so unique and fascinating.
We would like to introduce a collection of 3 Crystal Rollers in Quartz, Amethyst and Smoky Quartz, a fine hand carved writing instrument which you can pull out when you have a vision to manifest.” - Luis Alberto
