This pen was advertised as green marbled, something you don’t find among Swan Minors. The photographs were no help but I placed a bid anyway. I got the pen and when it arrived it turned out to be Marine Bronze which, admittedly, has some green in the mix.
Marine Bronze is a mixture of russet (or bronze), green and black but saying that doesn’t begin to describe the subtle allure of the pattern.
Minors are always great pens with the elegant stepped clip and invariably a lively nib. This one is no exception, a stub with flex.

Wish I had one. Any chance of a writing sample? Many thanks.
Interesting. This nib presumably is lovely. But if it is lively as well, I would be curious to see a writing sample.
I’ll make one shortly, Hans.
I am a bit of an addict for these colours! Looks lovely.
Hi Penny! Not a common pattern in the Minor.
