Ballpoint Pen Purple Charoite great gift idea
Purple and violet Charoite handmade on a lathe ballpoint
High quality writing pen

The Charoite pen was handmade on my lathe. Purple Charoite is a rare mineral, first described in 1978 and named for the Chara River. Charoite wasn’t know to the outside world until 1978. If you love purple…this is a great purple pen for everyday use. It is sure to get attention!

This is a twist style ballpoint pen (you “twist” the end of the pen to retract/unretract the ballpoint). I think of this style pen as an “everyday pen.” It is medium sized and will fit easily in a purse or shirt pocket. It is very much a high quality handcrafted pen

THE PEN
This handcrafted pen is unlike most of the “handmade” pens you may find on similar sites. It has a tough chrome with titanium gold accents finish that not only looks expensive but is extremely durable. The pen body is Charoite (trustone). Trustone is real stone that has been powdered and reformed into “blocks” with gem resin so it can be hand turned on a lathe. The hardware features components cast, polished and plated with durable chrome plating, Parker style refill with carbide ball point ink cartridge (available at most better office supply stores). There is an amber colored Swarovski crystal on the pen clip for added eye appeal.

THE DESIGN
A lot of work went into the making of this fine handmade ballpoint pen. The Charoite was cut and on a bandsaw was cut to fit the pen style. The Charoite was drilled and a brass pen barrel was secured and the ends were trimmed precisely. It was placed on my lathe and I carefully shaped the Charoite with carbide tools while keeping the stone cool with clean water. Once shaped, I began the lengthy process of polishing the stone to a glass like finish. This was accomplished by wet polishing with micro mesh. Micro mesh is a gradual step method in bring the surface polish to a professional finish.

Making high end quality handcrafted pens is my specialty and this pen is definitely a work of functional art!

ABOUT CHAROITE
Charoite is found in only one location - along the Chary River at Aldan in Russia. Charoite can be used to overcome obsessions and compulsions. Charoite is a soul stone with deep physical and emotional healing energies. It is a stone of transformation and is used to overcome fears.
