I had a bottle of Noodler, Rome Burning, sitting on my self which I had not touched for a while. Finally decided to put it in one of my pens but once i had the ink appeared to be very light. I then shook the bottle of ink and refilled the pen and found the ink returned to its original colour. Is this normal? Thanks.

I don't know about Rome Burning, but it's not all that unusual.

Pretty much what you did.  Shake the bottle before opening it.

I had this happen with a bottle of El Lawrence -- it had been fine, I'd been using it.  Then took it out of rotation for a few weeks, and the next fill it was really watered down looking.  When I went to refill the pen I shook the bottle up first and it was fine: looked just like the ink I've come to love for it's permanence and weird coloration.

Now I'm wondering if I should do the same with 54th MA -- the color in the bottle is a lot lighter and bluer than the sample I had of it.  OTOH, I'm not sure but what I like it better this way....
