    This Cigar style ballpoint pen has an attractive chunky feel and is made from beautiful Brazilian tulipwood and premium gun metal components. It has a semi gloss finish, which highlights the natural properties of the wood.

    This is a very beautiful and rare wood. The heartwood is a pinkish to salmon colour, overlain with streaks of yellow, red purple and rose.  The streaks can be perpendicular giving the wood a somewhat linear appearance or they can be quite variegated and random.

    Native to northeastern Brazil and occasionally found in Columbia and Venezuela, Brazilian Tulipwood is a small tree or shrub.  It grows up to 30 feet in height with a width rarely exceeding 12 – 16 inches. Hence the tree yields small pieces of material often with heart defect. It is a long-lived, slow-growing tree that requires a minimum of a 100 years to reach maturity.
