Do you feel this picture does this finish justice? Is there a turquoise-ish cast on the pearly parts of the pen as suggested by this picture? I suspect the mis of colors is more complex than suggested by the picture. I am intrigued and thinking about it. What more can anyone say beyond this very nice picture?
Of course it's always difficult to get 100% accuracy in a photo, digital display over a computer screen. Look at Richard Binder's color chip on his website for another (although smaller) image of the Turquoise Fleck. He told me he shot that chip image directly from my pen. I've taken out my pen just now and examined through a loupe while comparing to this photo again. Probably the turquoise shading on the pearl, as you mentioned, is a bit more pronounced on the photo than in hand. But there is some blueish cast to some of the cream/pearl parts (and they lighten towards the center of the chunk) — some more than others; and some of the cream/pearl parts have a golden tone. I'm assuming you are NOT talking about the turquoise "veins" running through the material, but rather the pearl colored chunks.
Overall, I think perhaps the pen has a bit more of a warmer tone in hand — that the cream/pearl chunks are not as light or pale in their centers as they appear in the photo. Aack — so difficult to describe using words. The turquoise veins, and the shimmering chunks (sort of like mica) do indeed appear glowing when held in light, and the pen was in light when I shot the photo. Also, since the chunks are distributed randomly, one side of my pen has more of the deep, reddish brown chunks than the other.
Maybe HennyPenny can take a photo of her Pen for another perspective. Okay now, I've fallen in love with my pen all over again after looking at it through the loupe!!!
