The third edition of the Minerali collection, Sole Orange is a limited edition demonstrator built on the classic 88 (Ottantotto) cigar-shaped profile. The rounded ends are crafted from brilliant amber auroloide material. A brilliantly colored finial and blind cap are separated by crystal clear acrylic resin, displaying the precision engineering of Aurora's Italian craftsmanship.
The nib on the Aurora 88 Minerali is a rhodium-plated 18kt gold nib and fills up with bottled ink using an internal piston mechanism. Only 388 fountain pens created in this style. Each is individually numbered at the top of the cap's finial.
The Aurora 88 Minerali is a beautifully crafted fountain pen. The filling mechanism is flawless. The 18K Nib delivers a smooth line although the Medium Nib Size I ordered was not ... view moreas wide a line as I had hoped for. I wish a Broad Nib size had been available but all things considered this pen does not disappoint. I now own the Red and the Amber version of this series. view less
