This 50ml glass bottle of Jacques Herbin 1670 Anniversary Emerald of Chivor fountain pen ink comes in a gorgeous bottle with a wax seal, worthy of this unique ink. This rich, deep teal green 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.

The 1670 line has a reputation for being the "pre-pubescent-teen-girl" of inks because of the mica glitter in it. But Emerald of Chivor is stunning even (or, perhaps, especially) without the mica. Beautiful ink.

This ink is out of this world!
Gorgeous, stunning...these words don't do the beauty of this ink justice. It lays down a beautiful teal/blue/green/gold on fountain pen friendly paper BUT, use it on Tomoe River paper and that's where the magic happens! It brings out the red layered over gold over the teal, sometimes not at all but keep on writing and you'll end up with a page of various, changing color combinations that are hard to believe came from the same pen, same ink. Highly recommend!!!

Tons of character in this ink
The base green color is awesome all by itself. I almost wish J. Herbin would release just that color in a regular ink. The sparkles are better behaved than in my older bottle of Rouge Hematite, so that's a plus. The red sheen only shows up on VERY ink-resistant paper like Tomoe River.

Wow what a fun ink!
This ink looks great in everyday writing nibs (fine and broad) has some nice shading. But to get all the character out of this ink you need a 2mm or greater nib.
Additionally the paper makes a big difference. This ink is not that exciting on a watercolor paper, but a coated paper that I have in some blank card stock made this ink sing.

Wow - just wow...
Of the four J. Herbin 1670 anniversary inks, this is the most spectacular: a dark green/blue/teal (which I'd appreciate if that's all there were), with golden flecks throughout... and an amazing red sheen if you lay the ink thickly enough on a non-absorbent paper (Tomoe River). Works best in a pen that lays down a lot of ink.
