Looked better on the web than actual
Although it performed well on most papers ( no appreciable bleed through, ok drying times, etc), yet the color comes out too orange for my taste. I did use some grey shaded quality paper and it fared better. Nonetheless on most white and cream colored paper it is not dark enough for my taste.
Topaz = Univ. of Tennessee orange
Topaz is my 2nd Monteverde ink so far and it is just as pleasant as my experience with the first. I picked it up thinking it could be a match for UT orange and it is spot on in person. (Compared with campus business cards that are printed with CMYK 0-50-100-0 for those who might find it helpful.)
It's a lovely yellow leaning orange that shades especially nicely in a wet pen. I had several compliments from Vol fan coworkers who liked the color.
