I've always loved purples, so today let's take a look at Monteverde Amethyst. My birthstone is Amethyst so of course I had to give this one a try. I purchased my samples of ink from Goulet Pens.
Amethyst is a beautiful, bright medium purple.
In large swabs there is some bright green sheen 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: 15 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper the ink performed well, no issues that I noticed.
I used a Pelikan 400N and medium Pelikan M805 Stresemann on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a lovely wet flow.
Overall, I really enjoyed this ink. The flow is wet and nicely lubricated. The color is beautiful, and it's one of the more affordable ink brands.
