which ink is this?
It's orange, but I'm not certain which orange, so I don't want to name names.

How long was it off to the side for?
Also, what is it about orange inks in particular?

So are we looking at deposits from evaporation of the ink, or microbial growth? That looks like something from my premed medical micro classes a long time ago.
It's bit disconcerting when you uncap a pen and see STUFF all over the nib. But it seems to be harmless deposits left after water evaporates out of the ink. No lifeforms invovled.
The good news is that it rinses right off, I didn't even have to disassemble the pen to get it writing again.

I have experienced that same crud with Diamine Orange (two bottles), Diamine Blaze Orange, and most recently with Montblanc Ink of Joy. Several years ago, I had the same experience with Private Reserve Dakota Red. ? I don't know if it's specific to orange-type inks, or a storage problem, or what. ? There was no indication of a problem in any of the bottles prior to use. The crud sometimes developed in a day or two.
I have experienced the same thing from my orange and sometimes inks (excluding Noodler's oranges and reds for some reason).

I bought a Pelikano a few months ago. I was quite unhappy with the pen because it would dry out when left alone for just a short time. So, I put it aside (without cleaning obviously) until I had some time to see if the cap could be sealed better. I got a bit of a shock when I finally got around to looking at it again.
Okay, I know I am vbery late to this post. But that is fairly common especially with some Diamine inks. Meadow does this in every pen I have had it in. Beautiful ink, serious evaporation issues.

That really is disgusting. I would like to know the manufacturer.

The P460 is a stunningly beautiful design but you're absolutely right, probably the leakiest pen I own; that's the main reason I haven't bought one in every color. I really want an orange one (and there's one up on ebay right now) but I refuse to buy any more of them. It's ok if you're using it on a daily basis but definitely not something to leave inked up to only use occasionally.

Reminds me of a few Parker 21s I found that had ink crud like that. Almost looks like rock formations on your nib.

J. Herbin "Rouge Hematite" was on a good path to turn my Lamy Al-Star's nib and feed into that. Immediately sucked it out of the converter and left the section in water for a day.
