The first thing (and the last thing) I thought about this ink after I bought it 6 years ago is that it has absolutely no resemblence to any jade rocks I've ever seen in my life.

I reckon >75% of ink names bear no relation to the colours they are supposed to represent :-)

I reckon only ~25% but even that is silly of them. I mean, apart from a few exceptions -- like "jade" which might have been attempted to possibly cast a hint at, even however somewhat vaguely, a type of green tea I like which is also called "Jade" -- they should choose a completly new name unknown to lovers of ink.

Looks similar to Lindauer Green, if memory serves; hard to say, as image from that review won't load anymore. Started to order the Lindauer yesterday but chickened out at the last minute.

I got to try a sample of this at the recent 2019 Pelikan Hub. It was in a Jinhao Shark Pen. I liked it then. I won a bag of samples as well as a bottle of Tanzanite.

The Goldspot exclusive Kaweco arrived today, and I filled it with a sample of Edelstein Jade (the samples came from the ink Pelikan sent to Hubs to sample.)

Here is how the ink looks in a BB Kaweco nib:

I have found our excellent reviewer Visvamitra does not like a certain range of green that includes J Herbin Vert Reseda, Diamine Soft Mint. But I like Soft Mint and this Jade. We each have our own favorites to keep things interesting.

I got the Jade as part of the Hub Master package and Ive got to say, out of a broad nib with good flow it really aint that bad, just a nice medium green with a bluish tint. I do like the darker forest green Aventurine better though.

OMG! Yours writes! I got one of these but mine barely lays down any ink (2nd Sport I've experienced this with). Was going to send it back but it's even prettier than the photos on Goldspot's site so I'll try another ink and then maybe take an exacto to the ink channel.

 

eta: After sitting another day, I was getting more flow but still very inconsistent, maybe the Deep Sea Green was too dry. Switched that out for Kon-peki and that seems to be working better.

Chromantic, I’m glad your Kaweco is working better. I switched the converter holding the Jade ink to another Sport but with bold nib. What a difference in one nib size. The result wasn’t nearly as dark.

The most Tiffany Blue I've used is J. Herbin Bleu Calanque.  An intense, bright Tiffany Blue.

I did not think I would like it, but once I had written with it, I have found that it is one of the new favorites in my collection.

I'm afraid I'm definitely with visvamitra on this one.  But it could be worse: It could be Organics Studio L Frank Baum Emerald Green....  :sick:
