J. Herbin 1798 Collection 50 ml Ink Bottle - Cornaline d'Egypte
Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world. "The Jewel of Inks" was created in Paris in 1700.
Herbin uses all natural dyes in their fountain pen inks. This natural composition is reflected in the very neutral pH of the inks.
The ancient Egyptians considered carnelian to be one of the most calming and healing semi-precious gemstones. It was believed to elevate the mood, eliminate stress and was used as a symbol of life.
This newest ink in the 1798 collection contains rich, orange/red pigments that have made the carnelian so beloved for thousands of years.
The addition of shimmering silver pigments gives this ink an elegant and refined depth and luster.
50ml bottle. Made in France.
*Our ink swabs are references to the actual ink colour. We have taken a lot of care and effort to ensure these swabs represent the actual colour to their best extent, but colours may vary due to factors such as monitor brightness and colour, nib size and wetness of your pen, and paper used. If you are unsure, we recommend trying an ink sample or chat with us, we are glad to help.
