Ink Review: Diamine Amazing Amethyst

Today's ink is Diamine Amazing Amethyst. First off, can I just say I hate the cursive letter z. It just looks weird, no matter how you write it. My birthday is in February, so my birthstone is Amethyst. I saw this ink, and just based off the name knew I had to give it a try. I purchased my bottle of Amazing Amethyst from Cult Pens.

The color...

Amazing Amethyst is a medium purple, with silver/green sheen.

The large swab on Tomoe River only showed just a tiny bit of sheen around the edge.

Feathering: Amazing Amethyst had no feathering.

Bleeding: Amazing Amethyst only had bleeding on Tomoe River paper with a flex nib.

Ghosting: Amazing Amethyst had low ghosting on Rhodia, medium on Leuchtturm and Baron Fig, and high on Tomoe River paper.

Shading: Amazing Amethyst had low shading on all of the papers, and only had a little sheen in large swabs on Tomoe River paper. The large swab on the col-o-ring showed the most sheen.

Left to right: Diamine Lavender, Diamine Amazing Amethyst, and Diamine Grape. 

Left to right: Pelikan Edelstein Amethyst, Pilot Iroshizuku Murasaki-Shikibu, and Diamine Music Handel. Murasaki-Shikibu has the closest tone to Amazing Amethyst, but Handel has the closest sheen.

Longer writing...

I really enjoyed this ink in longer writing. It's dark enough to see well but still shows plenty of shading. I used a medium nib on Tomoe River paper.

Overall, I liked this ink. Seasonally, I would use it in the spring. It has nice shading to it, and has an average flow.
