You wrote "the blue agate... the purple really is better in person". So... does the blue agate look more purple in person or is there a lot of purple in it that shows up more in person than in photos?

Sorry for the confusion. I didn't make it very clear in what I wrote that I have two pens, the Blue Agate and the Amethyst Ice. The Amethyst is hard to photograph and show how pretty it really is.

So, the Blue Agate is not purple at all. I was reviewing two pens of the same model.

I have a blue agate also. The pen is tiny. The smallest I own besides a Stipula Passaporto. I do like the pen, it is a good writer.

Maybe this will help with getting a feel for the size. The photo shows:

Thanks for the review. I have been considering one of these pens and your review has helped.

In your photo the purple one looks a tiny bit smaller than the blue. Are they the same or is there a difference?
Also - could you take a shot of those same pens with the caps off?
Thanks!

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

They are the same size. I'll try to get another photo this afternoon. I really wish I had a better camera.

And you can use Goulet's pen Plaza to show three pens that they carry at once to compare them visually. http://www.gouletpen...laza_s/1295.htm

And Binder's site does something similar (but with a ruled background), but the Edison Nouveau Encore is a Goulet exclusive. See http://www.richardsp...ens/compare.htm
