I've always loved the look of items made from malachite and found a maker and a pen type that appeared to be the goods. The attached pens in both trustone malachite and Chinese web have now arrived at home in Australia and I couldn't be happier with them. The pens are a good weight despite being heavy and look and feel sensational. Worth every bit of what they cost ... think I'll get a few more made!!!!

Not wild about the Chinese Web ones, but the Malachite TruStone ones are GORGEOUS.  Man, I would love to see a fountain pen made with that.

Have a look at their web site... there is a range of options including fountain pen ones that you can commission (not affiliated btw)... when I saw the pic of the Chinese web one I agree but in person it's a helluva lot nicer

Kit pens they may be but the quality of the core barrels in the above pens seem to me to be superior to many of the more prominent brand names - the advantage here is that you can get many stone, acrylic and timber finishes to your own design and choice.
