This week is focused on green inky goodness, so today's ink is Robert Oster Jade. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Jade is a medium green with some lovely shading.
When the ink is pooled it turns black around the edges, but it isn't sheen. I have found that a lot of Robert Oster's green inks do this.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper there was quite a bit of feathering but other than that the ink behaved well.

I used a broad Pilot Vanishing Point Copper (LE 2014) on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. There weren't any flow issues.
I love the shading this ink has.
Overall, it's a nice ink. I love the shading-I think I actually like it a little bit more than Robert Oster Eucalyptus Leaf. I'll probably end up buying a bottle of it since I like it so much. Give it a try, you might love it.
