Einstein Ring is a magenta-purple.



In large swabs you can see a little bit darkening around the edges.

Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.

Dry time: 30 seconds

Feathering: None

Longer writing: 

I used a medium Pelikan M605 White Transparent on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. 

Overall, I love the color of this ink. It's a lovely bright magenta, with a little bit of shading, and well behaved too.
