The Kyanite du Népal ink is the third ink in the J. Herbin 1798 Inks Collection. 1798 commemorates a special year in the history of Herbin, and a turning point in the history of France. Carnelian is a precious stone and a variety of chalcedony, family of agates, orange-red. In ancient Egypt, the Carnelian represented the red symbol of life. In lithotherapy, it is a joyful stone that brings vitality. It restores courage after hardships and intensifies concentration. 

Deep unsaturated colours with optimal pressure sensitivity, the J. Herbin 1798 Inks are illuminated with shimmering flecks of silver for an elegant finish. 

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.

    Another high-quality J. Herbin ink! The deep blue color with shimmer looks great.

    This is one of or perhaps the very best blue sparkle inks I have used. The color is luscious, and the sparkle is great especially on Rhodia paper. It is the Chanel number 5 of blue sparkle inks.

    As always Jacques Herbin inks are fantastic! Very nice shading and the contrast of dark and light blues are amazing. Best to write with a broader nib size to see the full effect. The shimmer is also not overwhelming and shows through just enough for a balanced look. Very nice ink for lovers of blue.

    This is simply the most spectacular blue ink I use. The color must been seen on paper to be appreciated. The sheen is rich and readily apparent. The one caveat is that I use it with a dip pen or an inexpensive fountain pen because the particles that provide the sheen tend to clog feeds. If you must try a “sheen” ink, and you like blue, this is your product.

    Its a unique color in itself. has a tinge of sparkles which are not overly evident when you put your pen to paper. In any case, one of the better Inks going around.
