The newest ink in the 1798 collection – Kyanite du Népal – is a summery blue with silver shimmer and a hint of turquoise.
Cornaline d’Egypt – The ancient Egyptians considered carnelian to be one of the most calming and healing semi-precious gemstones. It was believed to elevate the mood, eliminate stress and was used as a symbol of life. This ink contains rich, orange/red pigments that have made the carnelian so beloved for thousands of years.
The addition of shimmering silver pigments gives all of the 1798 Jacques Herbin Anniversary inks an elegant and refined depth and luster. Wax seal “1798” adorns the bottle.
