J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink, 1670 Anniversary Bottle, Emerald of Chivor, 50 ml

Highly saturated ink

The "1670" Anniversary J. Herbin collection celebrates the rich life and adventures of M. Herbin, a French sailor of the 17th century. From his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax and inks. Each glass bottle has a hand-dipped wax seal cap. Includes a J. Herbin history pamphlet.

J Herbin is said to have kept an emerald in his pocket during his voyages as a good luck charm. These precious gemstones have been treasured for centuries as protective talismans. One of the purest emerald deposits in the world, the Chivor mine, was discovered in the middle of the 16th century by Spanish conquistadors. Chivor emeralds were much in demand, and the emperors and royalty of India, Turkey and Persia sought the New World treasures once the gems arrived in Europe. Emeralds were enormously popular with the Mughal Court, whose emperors referred to them as "Tears of the Moon" because of their opaque transparency.

This beautiful emerald green-blue ink contains gold flecks throughout, enhancing your writing with an elegance and beauty that is unmatched by other inks.
