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.

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.

I love this ink. I ordered this ink from and email, it was shipped within an hour and 15 minutes? Maybe. Wow Thank you for the greatest service.

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.

J Herbin Emerald of Chivor
Lots of potential if you're using it for anything except writing. The sheen works best for drawing or pooling ink, but for straight writing there is not enough variation to be noticeably a special ink.
Vanishing Point, fine, Rhodia dotpad.

INK of the YEAR !
This is "the" ink to buy this year as long as you like shimmer to your ink. OK so it has sparkles and it shimmers like no other in the light, but there is more to it than that. Even it it did not have sparkles I would buy this ink. The color is fantastic. It is like the best part of Sailor Yama-Dori but brighter. I filled a 1.1 stub with it before shaking the bottle so would have minimal sparkle and the richness of the inks color was stunning. Rich, deep, saturated undertones that looked like a moving ocean. It might not be an everyday ink but it is an ink everyone should own. As well, cleaning it out of the 3 pens I used it in was a breeze.

Saw this in Paris this summer & coudn't wait to get my hands on a bottle. Thanks to Andersons email last week, I'm now a very happy scribe. Great shading & shimmer, especially in the broad stub & italic nibs I use. Just a lovely shade of green as well.
