Thanks Pep! It's going to replace SSB with this because it feathers on cheap paper.
For some odd reason, MB Violet is an elusive ink... None of the local shops in my area carry the ink!

I am not a fan of blue ink since I was constrained to blues and blacks as a kid during the dark ages. However, this ink is my all time favorite blue and I love it. I have yet to have this ink misbehave in any pen. I think your scan gives a good idea of the color of the ink, but I doubt there is a scanner available that can capture the shimmering translucence of this ink in person! During the dark, cold days of winter, this ink is a great mood booster.

I wonder if that'd work with my boss? If so, I need urgently to go on an ink buying spree.

The only other turquoise I've used was Waterman south seas, and I didn't like its electric intensity.
The MB turqoise has a calmer hue that is easy on the eyes, and I just find it to be beautiful. I'm always amazed at how small differences in color and saturation can make such a difference. I can't believe a turquoise is now my favorite ink!

Glad you like them! The turquoise is really fun.
BTw, the racing green is a very interesting ink, because it looks very different depending on the degree of flow of your pen. I have it in a pen with a fine nib with steady but thin flow, and the color is so beautiful. This color I prefer to what I see in a wider nib with greater flow which produces a much darker green, although some may feel the opposite.

gold cap Parker 51. He bought it as a set in the early 1950's. In his business
circle, MB Turquoise and Parker 51 was Dad's trade mark. This is the ink I use only
in Dad's 51. I don't use this ink in any other pen.
After I inherited Dad's Parker 51, I wrote with it to family and friends of the family.
More than a few people replied, " Oh, you have your father's pen."
My writing is conservative, and MB Turquoise is sedate. When I see it used by a bolder
style, it really is striking. Dad's hand was bold.
It has been a pleasure.

I also have 2 bottles of Mb emerald green ink and I love that colour. Sadly it isn't available anymore and for me their racing green and white forest are a bit on the dark side.
