This 50ml glass bottle of Jacques Herbin 1670 Anniversary Caroube de Chypre fountain pen ink comes in a gorgeous bottle with a wax seal, worthy of this unique ink. This rich, deep reddish brown ink has gold pigment particles suspended in it, achieving the sheen that is raved about by so many users. Jacques Herbin does include a fairly strict warning on the box, letting users know to clean out this highly saturated ink from your pen on a regular basis, but the ink is safe for fountain pens. The gold particles settle out of suspension fairly quickly, and these particles can be seen on the bottom of the bottle. The ink, and your pen, should be gently agitated before and occasionally during use.

Gorgeous, Fun Ink

I bought this after sampling several of the J. Herbin shimmering inks. I used a J. Herbin glass dip pen to maximize the sheen.

I had some parchment paper lying around and by tearing the edges it makes for a beautiful faux hand-made look. Coupled with this ink, it gives a wonderful look of elegance to your correspondence.

I also tested one of the shimmering inks in a Sailor Fude with good results. I'm away from my desk so I don't have the names but I have two more of this genre on my wish list.

New JHerbin 1670 Anniversary ink

Brown ink leaning to red with gold sparkles. As with all 1670 inks, your pen will require frequent cleaning with extra flushing. This is my second favorite of the set...just after Rouge Hematite. Try it. You'll like it.
