This ink reminds me of home and the biomes at the Eden Project in Cornwall Uk. So pretty! And emeralds...

This isn't a bad green at all, and I'm not being facetious! A bit similar to Sherwood Green in a way but a classic and if I were to use no other 'green' I reckon it would be this one.

Not a green to my taste, but thanks for the review nonetheless.  Seeing inks I *don't* want is as useful (and better for my wallet) than inks I *do* want.

It is fine, but not an ink that really speaks to me. I do think it is pretty in the title.

Of course, these are the kinds of greens that I adore! Thanks for this review!  See my other posts for the begging for letters.  


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I TG quite different from Sherwood. My first thoughts were Sherwood and/ or Beethoven, but all fabulously unique and individual.

I like the richness in the title and I can only apologise for the images, they don't do this ink justice!

This ink seems to be available only in the UK, not the US. 

At least I have not found a US dealer with it...yet.

Hi it is on its way to the US. There is another thread by a US dealer awaiting stock shortly. If not you can order from Diamine direct via email.
