Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 97

From Stuart's "Starwalker" to Glenn's "Moonstone", the highly-anticipated Pelikan M205 "Moonstone" Special Edition fountain pen belonging to our Aussie honourary VPC member...

The "Moonstone" is Pelikan's M205 Special Edition for the year 2020 and was inspired by the Moonstone gemstone. As they've done with the previous five M205/M200 Special Editions inspired by gemstones, a matching ink (Pelikan 'Edelstein' "Moonstone" ink) was released this year, as well.

There's a nice article on the pen on Joshua Danley's excellent Pelikan website here:
News: M205 Moonstone Special Edition Demonstrator

As Joshua notes in his article, it's the second year in a row that Pelikan has used sparkles in their yearly M205 Special Editions (the first being 2019's lovely "Star Ruby"). This shimmering iridescence gives a real "oomph" to what could be a relatively ho-hum grey demonstrator fountain pen (, in a recent newsletter, calls the M205 Moonstone "unassuming and opulent at the same time.")


 Glenn's own thoughts on the colour of the pen: "Very different with pretty but muted sparkle that might look even better on a less transparent pen." 

  Many thanks to Glenn for sharing this beautiful new acquisition with us :)
