Sapphire Dream by Mazzuchelli

Cellulose Acetate. Black with pearlescent turquoise blues, a deep purple blues and greens. 

Rod form. Rods are slightly oval in shape with factory extrusion "fins" still attached. 

Various lengths x 5/8" (narrowest) 3/4" (widest - not including fins) 

Made in Italy by Mazzucchelli. NOS (A rare New Old Stock find that was previously sold by Woodcraft) 

Painting the tube and reverse painting the tube hole is recommended. Cellulose Acetate is unequalled in it's depth and beauty, but it is delicate. Care must be taken when drilling and turning, as it has a fairly low melting point. Turning experience is recommended.

    This material is very interesting. It definitely does not cut quite the same as typical plastics, but it's similar enough. Little smell. It is worth noting, however, that the fins are a disturbance to how the material flowed while being extruded. This means that you can see a shadow of the fins on the shape of the spots in the material even after you've cut it down passed the fins. Best suited for smaller diameter pens; substantially thinner than the smallest listed dimension.

    Color depth is mesmerizing in the sunlight! I am also going to try the Conway Colors - Azure, as it's the same color-scheme as this.
