This 100ml plastic bottle of Herbin Eclat de Saphir blue fountain pen ink is elegantly labeled. Herbin ink is non-toxic and pH neutral, water based, flows smoothly, and uses all natural dyes.
Eclat de saphir (Sapphire blue): sapphire is a gemstone. The terminology probably comes from 2 origins: the Greek with "sappheiros" (a stone of blue color) or from the Hebrew "sappir" (the most beautiful thing). This color is a reminder of Herbin and his work at the most prestigious royal courts of Europe.
