Today let’s take a look at Pelikan Edelstein Jade. I purchased my bottle of ink from Pen Chalet.

The color:

Jade isn’t quite green, not quite teal, somewhere in the middle. It’s a gorgeous color.

Swabs:

In large swabs there is some pretty shading and just a little bit of sheen.

Writing samples:

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

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: medium shading, tiny sheen, and no shimmer.

On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a little bit of feathering, and a little bit of bleeding in the larger nib sizes.

Comparison Swabs:

Jade is a really close match to Diamine Cool Green. Click here to see the Pelikan inks together.

Longer writing:

 I used a Pelikan 400N on Tomoe River 68gsm. The ink had a slightly dry flow.

Overall, it’s a really nice ink. I wish the flow was a little bit wetter. Diamine Cool Green is a really close match for the color.
