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.

Caroube de Chypre is a dark brown ink with light red reflections and sparkling gold effect.

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.

  1. KeeJoon

    This ink is really a perfect brown ink: warm but dark brown, not too light. Because of the shimmering material, I use this ink in a high flow, broad nib, relatively inexpensive, Pelikan M205 Smokey Quartz demonstrator pen. It’s the perfect combination for me. I would not recommend use in an expensive demonstrator because I think the shimmer material coats the barrel over time (at least it did my Pelikan). Make sure to flip the pen a few times before writing with it to get the shimmer material in suspension. Frankly, I sometimes let the shimmer settle and use the ink as a perfectly behaved sepia ink.
