Continuing my ink reviews of the Nemosine space themed inks.


From what I could research, Coruscant is just a Star Wars thing with no real astrological meaning. Feel free to correct me if I'm incorrect in that regard. Thus, my quote is from Yoda.


Overall this ink is very much a purple-leaning royal blue. More violet than noodlers baystate blue, but not as purple as Alpha Centauri (comparison shown) There's a very mild amount of blackish, reddish/gold sheen that is only visible on very wet writing, and the saturation is very high.


Water resistance is medium - everything's legible after a 30 second soak.


Flow is good, all of these nemosine inks are quite wet and smooth thusfar. They even have enough surface tension to play nice with my dip nibs.


Feathering/showthrough is very little, not quite as great as alpha centauri, but solid nonetheless and this ink could easily be used in a wet F or medium/dry M on really bad paper.


Would I recommend this ink? You bet. A screaming deal, these colors are fantastic, the price is excellent, the bottles are lovely and well made, if you are buying a first nemosine ink I would still recommend Alpha Centauri for its glorious golden sheen, but thusfar not a single one hasn't been really excellent.


A really nice everyday royal blue with some usable amounts of water resistance.


Box is simple. Raised "NEMOSINE" logo on one side.




Small sticker indicating color and that the inks were brewed in Slovenia




Bottle design is awesome. Large mouth, narrow bottle. J. Herbin and pelikan could learn a lot from this bottle design for small quantities of ink. bottle is quite heavy glass and the label has the geographical coordinates of the place it was bottled - Pittsburgh, PA.




Lovely, high saturation violet royal blue.




all nibs are lamy steel, EF to 1.1 stub. Most are quite wet, the stub is medium. Note the impressive water resistance. and quick dry times (much quicker than alpha centauri)





pretty exciting smear test, lots of blue violet color.





Nice saturation with good shading. the bleed/show/feathering is only on garbage paper. Rhodia and decent laserjet paper have zero issues.






the sheen comes out bigtime on the drip. That's not wet nor is it smearing, that's the sheen effect.





the sheen is barely visible. This would be mostly visible in extremely wet nibs and nonexistant in medium/dry nibs. These lamy nibs are medium/wet




Moderate-good shading. Wetter nibs will see less.




Less ink came up than I'd have expected.




A wet swab from a dip nib of alpha centauri. You can see the color difference in how much more purple it is, along with the more vivid gold sheen.



pretty exciting smear test, lots of blue violet color.

Really pretty! I didn't pay much attention to this one because the pics on Goulet' s site are lackluster . I may have to revisit it!
