VENUS’S HAIR - Made exclusively by BENU for Truphae

Venus's Hair is the first retailer exclusive produced by BENU after relocating from Russia to Armenia. It is a limited production of just 300 pens!


Opting always for the most unusual and striking of designs, it's no surprise that the inspiration behind our latest BENU creation is the out-of-the-ordinary and rather intriguing venus-hair stone. Dressed in metallic tones with etherial-like needle patterns, this ancient rock feels otherworldly. But how did the venus-hair come to earn its name? And is it true that this mysterious stone can attract love and bring good luck?

The venus-hair stone, less popularly known as rutilated quartz, contains mineral inclusions that give the stone its dramatic look. These small, needle-like rutile crystals form as fine filaments of metallic gold, silver, red, or brown; giving the appearance of hair strands. Science reveals that during the stone's growth, agglomerates containing liquids, gases, and other minerals are formed and are retained within the rock's material. However, there is a string of ancient tales that claim that the hair-like strands boasted by the venus-hair stone are thanks to no other than Venus herself, the Goddess of Love.

As legend has it, Venus was one day An enjoying a swim in the purest of lakes when a few strands of her beautiful locks fell and remained in the water. Upon discovering this sometime later, Venus decided to return to the lake to collect her fallen hair. By then, however, it was already winter and the lake had frozen over. There, sparkling in the ice, were her golden curls. Amazed by their beauty, Venus decided to transform the frozen water into stones and take the jewels with her.

According to another tale, Venus was combing her golden locks at the edge of a mountain lake, where she forgetfully left the comb. A band of mischievous river nymphs, recognizing the power retained in the goddess' hair, decided to steal the comb for themselves. The nymphs did not know how to share, however, and squabbles ensued. Hearing their arguments, Venus arrived and transformed the hair strands into stone to put an end to the nymphs' quarrels.

Another legend simply claims that Venus adored the quartz stone so much that she set out to honor its power and beauty by locking stands of her hair within it, giving it its name, the "Venus-Stone". Yet, this curious gem, with its mysterious and rich legacy, has a whole host of other interesting names - Cupid's Arrow, the Stone of Love, and in Eastern countries, the Sacred Stone of the East.

Since the beginning of time, humans have extracted unusual rocks to create unique works of art and pieces of jewelry. But utilizing stones such as the venus-hair isn't simply for decoration or aesthetics alone. For centuries, quartz stone has been used as amulets and charms, a tradition that dates as far back as Ancient Egypt. The Egyptians believed that quartz could change the course of a person's fate. Furthermore, it was believed that this powerful stone could save a person from loneliness and help them find happiness, security, and love in marriage. For this reason, the venus-hair, as earlier mentioned, is often referred to as the Stone of Love.

Nowadays, crystal-fanatics swear by donning supernatural stones on the body in an attempt to bring upon themselves good luck and success. Esotericists consider specimens of the venus-hair stone featuring golden threads to be the most powerful. Used in magic rituals, the venus hair is believed to protect against negative entities, enhance creativity, and uncover magical abilities.

Whether or not you believe in the tales that lie behind the venus-hair rock or its supposed magical qualities, one thing is certain: the beauty of this special stone is unlike no other. Striking, distinctive, and bold, we have captured the stone's essence in our very own Venus' Hair fountain pen. Write with it and, who knows, perhaps you'll find greater happiness, luck, and love. We won't say no!

Beautiful pen that writes as good as it looks

First of all, Trumphae was great and got the pen to me so quickly, beautifully wrapped. It is such a gorgeous pen. It's my first Benu Talisman, and I love the feel of the pen in terms of it's weight and the resin. And the resin is stunning!! Sparkly copper bits with sparkly gold bits. I love it!! And I've found Benu pens to have really nice smooth nibs (mine was a medium). Thank you Benu and Trumphae!!! Very happy with my purchase.

Gorgeous LE

The BENU Talisman is currently my favorite pen - I love the sparkle of BENU and the form factor of the Talisman is my favorite model they make. The Venus Hair goes from a chocolate brown to gold to rose gold filaments to a translucent brown-orange around the grip and band and is truly a unique BENU, I've never seen the filaments on any of the other models. This pen is absolutely STUNNING in sunlight. The section with the filaments is see-through and somewhat like a demonstrator. There are also two lines of brown resin that go all the way to the grip (which surprised me) but it looks like all of them are like that and I've come to see it as just part of the design of the pen. It's gorgeous and if you're fan of this model I'd definitely get one before they're gone - the photos don't do it justice!

Absolutely love this pen!

This is my first Benu and I am HOOKED! I got it in the broad nib and inked it with Ferris Wheel Press' Autumn in Auburn and it's such a beautiful color for this pen. It wrote smooth from the get go and it is SO GORGEOUS! I am very pleased with this pen.

Looks attractive in pics, but SO much prettier in person!

The way this Benu Talisman sparkles at all angles with a rosy warm golden glow is just ridiculously pretty, you will not be disappointed in its looks. The pen quality is perfect, the Schmidt nibs as always are smooth wet writers. Also Truphae is an awesome company and I was impressed with them in all aspects of this purchase, such an underrated new find in the pen community! I am a fan who will be back for sure.

Great pen and free ink

I ordered the Benu Venus's Hair pen in broad. Received it on Friday. They also included a free bottle of Monteverde Brown Sugar ink. Perfect match to the pen. I did add Brilliant Gold and Aztec Gold powdered pigments to the ink and it looks fantastic. This makes my 4th Benu pen in my pen collection. Great pen
