Top 2-3 turquoise

Good turquoise. I will probably buy a bottle. Lamy had a slight advantage as it seemed to be very slightly brighter and more resemble the lighter shades of the turquoise stone.

Nice Color

I've used this in my Lamy 2000 and Pilot 823. I like Pelikan. I have their Royal Blue. So, I thought I would try this color. It's great. It's your quintessential Turquoise. Can't go wrong with it.

Good partner to Pilot Metropolitan & L1917

I'm very new to fountain pens, but having worked in the printing industry I am fairly picky. I've been Bullet Journaling for a few months and tried Pelikan inks based on a Goulet recommendation, when I explained what pens were and were not making me happy with my Leuchtturm1917 A5 dot grid notebook. I was delighted to see the color matches my favorite turquoise Pilot G2 pens - a color I loved so much when it was launched, I searched everywhere for a way to get just that refill and not the assorted colors it came with at the time. The turquoise is dark enough to be legible, light enough to have very little ghosting (I've also had zero bleeding), and the character of the color is strong enough it comes through in the fine point of the Metropolitan (a quality I didn't find with Pelikan Aquamarine (which looked diluted) or Tanzanite (which looked like a messed up black). I am experiencing a lot of smearing however.

The one I am using

I purchased a selection of colors to try in my new Pilot Metropolitan. Of all the colors Pelikan Turquoise was the one I chose to use in my pen first! A beautiful color that is easy on the eyes.

Very nice

A fun turquoise. Nice and bright/vivid. Not in the green spectrum of turquoise at all.

FAQ about Ink Samples

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism.

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.
