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.

I've been using this ink in a TWSBI 580 with an M nib ground to a stub and the gold sheen is quite strong. It does help to shake the bottle for about 5-10 seconds (until you can no longer see the gold particles on the bottom of the bottle) and to gently roll the pen barrel between my palms to make sure the gold particles that settle in the ink reservoir are distributed evenly while writing. Make sure to save this ink for fountain pen friendly paper to get the most out of it!

Great Ink Great customer service
The ink is an incredibly gorgeous color. I was lucky to be able to pick it up at the SF pen Show.
Andersons has a new customer for sure!

Like none of the other blue-green inks that I use ... it is in a class by itself. Such a pretty color, office-friendly, dries pretty quickly (us lefties like that), and that sheen when the light hits it right is so much fun! A really fun ink to use especially in a clear pen!

The color is perfect. I gave it as a gift to complement the other J. Herbin Anniversary inks that were received on Christmas. He loves it!

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!!!
