The cap and body are a deep pearlescent green resin. It's a pretty consistent green color, shimmering in some areas, but not changing much in shade. This pen is quite unlike what Visconti usually makes; it's definitely on the plain side, compared to their usual designs.
NIB & PERFORMANCE
The medium steel nib is a Schmidt nib. It has a single slit, and no breather hole. The nib is engraved with an M, Iridium Point, and some flourishes. It looks like a pretty thin nib.
The clip is nice and springy, easy to operate, and not the kind to snag very easily. I found the shape of the section comfortable, except it was a little on the short side. The length of the section may bother those with larger hands. The threads at the back of the section are not sharp, so they didn't bother me.
