This 50ml glass bottle of J. Herbin Amethyst de l'Oural (Amethyst of the Ural Mountains) Anniversary fountain pen ink comes in a gorgeous bottle with a wax seal, worthy of this unique ink. This rich, deep purple ink has silver pigment particles suspended in it, achieving the sheen that is raved about by so many users. J. 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 silver 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.Amethyst de l'Oural is inspired by the gemstone trade of the 16th and 17th centuries. Amethyst stones from Russia, Brazil and the island of Sri Lanka were eagerly sought after for the calming, meditative and lucid dream-like qualities. Though similar to 1670 inks in depth and viscosity, the opening of the bottle is much wider, the wax top thicker, and the Jacques Herbin logo is engraved on the bottom of the bottle.For a thorough review of this ink, check out our thINKthursday blog post.Coming in September 2017!
