Today's reader request ink is Monteverde Sapphire from the Gemstones collection. I purchased my samples of ink from Goulet Pens.
Sapphire is a beautiful royal blue.
In large swabs you can see two different colors of sheen-copper and green.
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 some feathering and bleeding in every nib size.
I used a medium Pelikan M600 White Tortoise on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wet flow.
Overall, I like this ink. The color is pretty, and it has a lovely wet flow. I love the dual sheen.
