Brand: J. Herbin


Jacques Herbin’s 1670 Collection celebrates the rich life and adventures of Herbin, an enterprising French sailor of the mid-17th century. While he was in the employ of the Compagnie des Indes Orientales, he made a number of voyages to India, collecting ingredients and formulas for his sealing wax and inks.

Emeraude de Chivor is an elegant emerald green ink with flecks of gold.

The 50ml bottle is sealed with the famous J. Herbin supple wax.

J. Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world. M. Herbin created “The Jewel of Inks” in his shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700.

    Very good ink, I easily get gold shimmer with a Scribo medium nib. Remember to shake the bottle a bit before filling, and move the ink in the cartridge do as the particles will deposit at the bottom (mostly for the bottle, a pen being as static). The ink is teal colored and well-lubricated.

    Émeraude de Chivor’s combination of teal ink, red sheen and gold shimmer is obviously very pretty, it’s the only shimmering ink that somehow still manages to look classy instead of being ostentatious, at least to me.

    But the best part is the formulation. It flows extremely wetly, so the shimmer doesn’t settle or clog the feed that easily. The glitter is also very fine and relatively sparse compared to most shimmering inks, so you can really see the little dots sparkling instead of getting a thick coat of reflective metal that obscures the ink colour. It seems to stick to the paper much better than shimmering inks from other brands I’ve tried as well, so it doesn’t seem to get glitter all over your fingers or notebook.

    The bottle looks lovely, but it could be better for filling. Isn’t that always the case with these pretty bottles, though?

    This ink is lovely, it has a real impact on the paper and great to differentiate from ‘normal’ blue or black ink. Would definitely buy more colours from J. Herbin in the future.

    First, I am not sure what is “stormy” about this ink, could have been just named as “storm grey”. Good ink; but use-wise and color wise I personally prefer the Chivor Emerald and Ocean Blue over this one. Unless you create a smudge with the ink, or you use this color to draw (hence have broad brush strokes); the color does not really stand out while using on a fountain pen. So recommended preferably for painting than use in writing with a fountain pen.

    I love this ink for the combination of green/blue and gold accents. Very beautiful ink when used with broader nibs. Maybe not an everyday ink, but none the less very very nice!

    I never used this ink. My first impression is that it is very smooth. Use very good paper to feel smooth sliding write.

    I’ve been thinking about buying these inks for years now but always found them a little expensive. Where I live they are sold for almost twice as much, so I was really happy to have found them here.
    I tried them in different pens, and would obviously recommend to use one with good ink flow and a broader nib, as it helps the shimmer particles to show up. Also it’s best to use a pen that can be easily cleaned, because the particles will stick to whatever they can if the ink dries up. But if you consider this (and also find the paper that works best for you), you get rewarded with a beautiful ink pattern.
    They are gorgeously packaged and would make a great gift for any fountain pen lover.

    Among all the inks I have this has the best shimmer and looks. I use it on my platinum 3776 so that it doesn’t dry out. They are perfect combination

    The ink J. Herbin 1670 Emeraude de Chivoir is without doubt a great ink. It behaves well, does not clog the pen despite the shimmering particles. In proper conditions (good quality paper and ad least a medium nib) you can see all its green turquoise shadings, red shine and yellow shimmer. The price is fair for such a good quality ink. Totally recommended.

    Lovely dark brown. Low sheen and shading, but wonderful shimmer that flows evenly, no issue with clogging at all. Did not hesitate to ink up my Montblanc 146 with this ink.

    I like a wet ink because my pens’ nibs are fine and extrafine. It has very good ink flow and color.

    Loving the sheen and shimmer on this ink especially when written on a good paper like Tomoe River.

    This is our first J. Herbin ink, and its exactly as advertised. The ink is a very nice grey, but the really beautiful feature is the gold shimmer. The gold isn’t as apparent when writing with a fine nib, but it shows up better with a medium where the lines are thicker and more ink is laid out. I recommend trying it out

    Emerald Of Chivor is my first ink from J. Herbin and I’m extremely pleased. The color is stunning though I have only used it with a fine nib so haven’t achieved the gorgeous shimmery color yet. Definitely on my list to ink up in a flex nib.

    This is my first J. Herbin ink. I bought the emerald de chivor And I am completely delighted. I’m planning to buy the rest of the collection as well. The colour is incredibly beautiful, a special Aquamarine green-blue combined with the green of an emerald and with the golden sparkling of the sun upon the water surface. It has a very distinctive reddish tint contouring the letters even when writing with fine nibs and better observed when used with larger ones or calligraphy pens. Highly recommend!

    P.S. the bottle is very cool

    I already owned the 1798 Améthyste de L’Oural ink…which is one of my holy grail inks. This time I ordered the famous Emerald de Chivor and the Stormy Grey. I must say that both even though they are shimmer inks flow fantastically and especially Emerald de Chivor pops off the paper like no other ink. So very impressed by both and highly recommended. Two thumbs up!!

    First the bottle is exceptional!!! it is something that you would want to display. However, what makes the bottle exceptional makes it hard for some pens (specifically) large one to get inked up. Having said that, the ink is fantastic. The ink flows nice and smooth. The clean up is easy and provides some shading even on fin nibs.. I would highly recommend this ink.
