It’s the last day of green ink week, so let’s finish up with Monteverde Olivine from the gemstones collection. I purchased my bottle of ink from Pen Chalet.
Olivine is a pretty olive green.
In large swabs there is just a little bit of black sheen and lots of pretty shading.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in most nib sizes.
I used a Pilot Vanishing Point Crossed Lines with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wetter than average flow.
Overall, I enjoyed this ink a lot more than I expected when I first swabbed it. It has some pretty shading and I’ve fallen in love with the color. It has a nice wet flow and it’s a good value for the price.
