It seems Levenger is family company that offers a wide variety of products. Among other things the company offers a line of fountain pen iks.

 

 

  1. Amethyst
  2. Blazing Sunset
  3. Blue Bahama
  4. Cardinal Red
  5. Claret
  6. Cobalt Blue
  7. Cocoa
  8. Empyrean
  9. Forest Green
  10. Gemstone Green
  11. Greystoke
  12. Pinkly
  13. Pomegrenate
  14. Raven Black
  15. Regal
  16. Shiraz
  17. Skies of Blue
  18. Smokey (discontinued)
  19. True Teal

I don't know who makes their inks but I must say I was impressed by few Levenger inks I've tried so far. Maybe with time I'll be able to review whole line. Time will tell.

 

Gemstone Green is a dark emerald ink that is primarily green, but with a slight turquoise hint to it. Usually I dislike such hues but because of great lubrication using this one was quite pleasant. I wouldn't buy a bottle but I believe it'll be great choice for those of you who enjoy heavily saturated emerald greens. Additionally you can even get a bit of reddish purple sheen with this ink.

Good review as always but I don't like this green bcause it is IMO by no means a gemstone. Rather, a dirty teal. Maybe a "False Teal"?

When I see an ink named "gemstone", "jade" or "emerald", I'm pretty sure I won't like it. Lol

Cobalt Blue is a favorite of mine. Saturated, vibrant, yet well-behaved.

At first glance, it reminds me of the Diamine Steel Blue.

There's almost as much blue as green according to the RGB number.

It seems i prefer green inks with some blue in it. This looks close to my favourite green ink: Waterman (Harmonious) Green.

The Levenger inks do seem lubricated.  They have a very nice 'feel' to them.


Be Happy, work at it. Namaste
