Sounds like a "51" Special

The black jewel is usually a sign of a "51" Special. This was a lower end version which normally did not have a gold nib. You can tell by looking at the filler. If there is a hoop surrounding the sac(like the Parker 21), its a Special. It writes just as good as a "51" aerometric, and is worth buying since it can be gotten at a cheaper price.
