Does anyone write with pens anymore? How about fountain pens?

German pencil maker Faber-Castell churns out writing implements by the thousands, but it will only make 150 examples of its latest Pen of the Year.

This extravagant fountain pen is fashioned of quartz, jasper, and gold, and carries a price tag of 7,000 euros ($9,500) for its Special Edition.

Craftsman Boris Igdalov, who worked on the restoration of the Agate Pavilion outside St. Petersburg, Russia, designed the pen in two versions for the company’s Graf von Faber-Castell luxury line.
