I've noticed that Kobe #38 Kitanozaka Night Blue is quite close. 4B has a bit more teal though, and more sheen.

Definitely a form of turquoise, but the shade on my page looks a little deeper?

In my experience, Diamine Blue-Black is pretty close, though it doesn't sheen. Here's a pic of three inks (4B, Diamine BB, and Sailor Kobe 38). Hope this helps.

I have not used 4B, but from the many descriptions of it being a deep blue / blue-black / not teal with lots of sheen, then I wonder if anyone has done a comparison with Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue or Akkerman Shocking Blue.  Those two came to mind as I was looking at the images above...

I wouldn't say 4B is a teal, but it has a slight teal component to it.
