Kaweco Summer Purple is another ink to try if you don't mind a dusty look.

I, too, was going to suggest Shigue but you might also look at KWZ Grey Plum - http://www.fountainp...?hl=+grey +plum

 

Then there's Noodler's Nightshade but it's likely more red-leaning that what you're looking for.

Also consider Diamine Bilberry. I made the mistake of putting it and Shigure in identical pens, and was forced to label them to have any idea which was which.

BungBox Ink of the Witch.
It's a purple that looks almost black in many nibs.

How about one of KWZ's iron gall inks like IG gummiberry?

If IG inks are 'allowed', that sounds like a good idea.

A bit worse than standard ink, but modern IG inks are made for fountain pens so there shouldn't be any major issues. However, if you clean and flush the pen every third fill you should be fine.

As Andy said, they're better than they used to be, but as a rule, I avoid them. If you do want to experiment with one, use it in a dedicated pen that you don't mind losing and as Andy said, keep it well flushed and I'll add: well used. :)

These comparisons with Diamine pansy may be useful.

Looking at a writing sample of Aurora Blue I just got (Lamy Safari w/fine) it leans towards purple.

 

Levenger Amethyst is probably too purple for your needs. But there are some great purples. Check the purple/violet color swatch thread for all kinds of purples.
