The body of the pen is entirely lathed out from a solid bar of precious glossy red resin, and it comes, as the cap, enriched with two overlay filigrees in Solid Gold 18 kt; one filigree is white gold plated, while the other is yellow gold. These filigrees represent the Leonardo da Vinci’s alchemical boards that were found in Florence in the Laurenziana Library of the Medici’s family: they are very symbolic and recall the union of the four elements which gives origin to the “Quinta Essentia” (5th element).
This pen has two fountain pens in one: the famous Visconti 23kt Palladium nibs get plated in yellow and in white gold. The mechanism is quite sophisticated in order to reference manipulation of strange substances and alembics; it has been designed to be refilled with a dedicated eyedropper.
This masterpiece gets provided with a dedicated pen-stand (that is also an inkwell) and box.  The pen-stand is shaped as the spiritual representation of the circle of life. Indeed, there are two dragons that are eating each other in a circle. One dragon dies while the other one is re-born. The pen can be standing suspended in the middle of the circle through a hidden magnetic system. The inkwell made of solid crystal is a copy of some medieval “magical” pots used during experiments hold in secret rooms: inside, there are two small cavities to host two different kinds of ink.
