This is my blend I've called Faux Edelstein Aquamarine.

It is an equal parts blend of Edelstein Sapphire and Edelstein Topaz.

Thank you!  This is great.

Once the real thing is out, someone should do a comparison of the two side by side!

From what little I've seen so far mine is quite different from the 'Real' one.

I am going to have to change the name before large men dressed in Pelikan Edelstein Onyx start knocking on my door.

Any suggestions?

I'm reluctant to go for a gemstone in case this happens again. I'm leaning towards Deep Coral Sea Blue.

OK, on instruction from Amber (and we all do what our lawyers tell us, don't we?), this ink is now renamed FE Coconut Crab Blue

Amber, how do we change the title and edit the content at the bottom?

On computer screen, the color looks similar to Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki. Nice color.

That's a beautiful ink. I love it! I don't have either of the "parent" inks, so I won't be able to mix up a small batch, but I think yours is amazing. And I LOVE the name, because I love those huge coconut crab monsters. I would SO make a pet out of one if I could :-).

If you adjust the proportions, I'll bet you could come up with  FE PPS.  :)

I was thinking a cross between Kon Peki and Souten.
