Thank you Chrissy for the nice review. Thank you Julie for adding your nice pictures.

For those who have actually used this ink, is there any green tint in it?

Prussian blue should not have green in it... I'm usually not fond of teal inks, and it's so difficult to  correctly perceive colours on screen.

In my experience blue inks look more blue on my PC screen than they are in reality.

Thanks for the review, it's very tempting. I'm wondering how it would be likely to look using a F or EF nib. Not too muted, I hope.

I tried to love Prussian Blue, I really did, but it was just too washed out for me.

Thanks for the review. I love faded blue inks and this one I use this one pretty regularly.

If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.

What I find odd is the color.

Thats not Prussian/Berlin Blue.

Attached is. Diamine Prussian is way too gray. True Prussian blue should be purely blue.

Yes, we know. http://www.fountainp...ssian-blue-ink/

 

Which makes me even more grateful to @Chrissy, @LizEF and other ink reviewers for showing us Diamine Prussian Blue, so we can individually decide for ourselves whether that ink colour is what we want to see on the pages of what we write, instead of blindly wanting or expecting "Prussian Blue" to either mean the actual pigment, or be a perfect match for it without having examples of such against which to fix our requirements and calibrate what we see on paper.

I tend to favour greyish blues and I bought a bottle of Diamine Prussian Blue after reading this thread. I am delighted with it. There’s something calm and elegant about it, it is distinctive but also easy to read and suitable for any situation. I’m absolutely sure it will become a favourite for me and my go-to mid blue. Thank you to all who posted about this one.

Phew!  Glad you like it. :thumbup:  And I agree - easy on the eyes, suitable for anything, but a little more interesting than the average blue.
