This is a nice brown but it doesn't hold a candle against my favorite brown, GVFC hazelnut brown.

This review tipped the scales for me. I've gotten my bottle and love it. Thanks.

I love this ink, no discontent with GvFC Hazelnut Brown, but this ink performs for me perfectly. I have stocked up on 7 bottles and I wonder if I shouldn't get more seeing as Pelikan has not renewed it as part of the regular Edelstein line. I plan to start doing creative writing this month, I want to use exclusively Smoky Quartz for writing short stories and novels.

I love this ink, especially considering how water-resistant it is! Does anyone know where I might be able to grab a bottle or two? This would be perfect in my Wing Sung 601.

Both Fountainfeder and Seitz-Kreuznach have them in stock, and have relatively reasonable international shipping.  I bet you could find this closer to home too, if you're in the US, but I have no idea where or for how much.

Try Amazon.  They had it yesterday.  My bottle will be here tomorrow.

Did I hear that the ink was being added to the normal lineup because it was such a smash hit?

You might email Pen Chalet, I cleared them out recently but they had some more coming in, though I am not sure what is left of this ink nor if it is coming back!

Great review. I actually have had a bottle of this but haven't broke it out, may be time to try it.
