Charoite is a medium blue-purple or “blurple”.
In large swabs you can see a bit of the bright green sheen.
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
Feathering: Low-there was some feathering in the flex nib.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a bit of bleeding and feathering in the flex nib and a bit in the other nib sizes as well.
I used a Platinum 3776 Nice Lavande with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a nice wet flow.
Overall, I enjoyed this ink. The flow and color is good, but there’s a bit more feathering and bleeding in the flex nib than I prefer.
