(Another quickie review, being largely a by-product of my checking how the EF nib on a Delike Alpha performs.) Colour:
I suppose the closest colour of ink I have to it is Diamine Evergreen but, at least in daylight, Monteverde Olivine is slightly more yellow (and Diamine Evergreen has an obvious red sheen).Feathering:
None observed on the Rhodia paper I used.Ghosting and bleed-through:
Not from normal writing, but several passes with a soaked cotton swab or a wet nib can cause some ghosting and even bleed-through.Drying time:
Quick enough. No smearing after 15 seconds.Water resistance:
None whatsoever. Washed clean off the page under a running tap in under 15 seconds.Shading:
Some, but slightly subtle. No distinct step going from faint to dark. That's a good thing.Sheen:
Not any to speak of. There is the slightest hint of a dark red outline or 'halo', if you look really hard, but that's about it.

As always: 1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment. 2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published. 3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
