J. Herbin 1798 Amethyste de l'Oural (50ml Bottled Ink)

50ml glass bottle of J. Herbin 1798 Amethyste de l’Oural fountain pen ink. This ink is a deep rich purple in the velvety hue of a rare gemstone. A silver mist provides a lustrous shimmering effect.

Amethyste de l'Oural means Ural Amethyst or Ural Mountain Amethyst, and suggests the color of royalty. This ancient amethyst gemstone from the gates of Asia was prized for its calming, meditative and lucid dreaming qualities.

1798 commemorates a significant year in J. Herbin's history. At this time, the French Revolution was ending, and the Herbin company, founded in 1670, was growing. In 1798 the company relocated to expand their production capabilities and the influence of their inks and sealing wax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and Elegant purple jnk I was lucky to purchase this ink when it first dropped a few weeks back. I tried it out in my lamy vista and then again yesterday when my twsbi 580al broad nib arrived. I am madly in love with this ink. The subtlety of the silver shimmer gives it that something extra special. it is a very saturated ink. It looks lovely on crane paper and my rhodia dot pad. In my photo it is in my ink sample book clairefontaine flying spirit in ivory. It seems to dry rather quickly which is surprising. I haven't had any issues with this ink clogging my pen or any issues with it starting and stopping. It lays down a lovely line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky purple lover I love purple ink in theory but so often I'm disappointed by the bottles I buy. Not the case this time! J.Herbin has managed to skirt the line between warm and cool purple and the silver flecking is very subtle so this ink ins't "froofy" feeling on the page. No problems writing professional thank you notes or invitations with it. Smooth and juicy on both the glass dip pen and in a TWSBI stub. Pricey ink, but if you can swing it definitely worth adding to your shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite ink I absolutely ADORE this ink. Purple is my favorite color, and with silver shimmer?! My credit card was out at the speed of light. I've been using it in my Lamy Safari with a 1.1mm stub nib just to get to see the shimmer even more. I wrote a long letter to my best friend using a 1.5mm stub nib just for the joy of writing with and showing off this ink. At one point during the week my pen got a little clogged, so this is something to watch out for. You definitely can't just let the ink sit in your pen for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful purple with a subtle sparkle t's a beautiful dark purple with a pretty subtle sparkle. The sheen is pretty understated but under the right light, you could clearly see the sliver glitter in the ink. It's not a bright, punchy purple, but it's saturated enough that you know what color you're looking at. Best used with thicker nibs that would really show the ink color (I used a 1.1 stub nib).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Juicy, with just the right amount of shimmer I'm quite pleased with this ink, its not overly shimmery but juuuuust right. What I mean is that you can still clearly read the ink as a nice purple, not too warm or cool. I guess you could say it's a Goldilocks purple! The ink writes a bit wet, which I like and feel is needed with the shimmer inks. I've loaded it into a 1.1 stub TWSBI and no clogs whatsoever in the week I've had it with use about once every two days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's so shiny! I feel a little bit like that cartoon girl with the stuffed unicorn who just can't with the fluffiness of her toy. This ink IS my stuffed unicorn. It's got the perfect amount of sparkle, it's a great purple, and it's every bit as yummy as my Chivor, without as much bleed-through. IT'S SO SHINY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful shimmer As with all J.Herbin inks, the bottle itself is gorgeous and heavy. The pictures are accurate as to the color and shimmer on paper. I've only used it in my Noodler's Ahab Flex, and it is wonderful. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Love this stuff it's such a great purple. I could take or leave the glitter, but it looks great either way. Also the bottle is really nice looking.
