Today we have received the Pelikan Edelstein Ink of the Year 2019 Star Ruby. 

When it was released we were not really fascinated by its color. But after a 

quick test this has changed. 

 

The Star Ruby ink really is interesting. It offers lots of shading and has the 

potential to vary between light pink and dark burgundy red. Depending on

the ink application on the paper it varies a lot:

This text has been written with a flexibel nib. 

 

Compared to the existing Edelstein Ruby, the Star Ruby offers more variety

in color and the character of the ink is brighter.

We have the ink in store now: https://www.fritz-schimpf.de/Schreibgeraete/Zubehoer/Pelikan-Edelstein-Ink-Collection.html

Thanks for the early photos. Do you know how it compares to the earlier (2012) Edelstein release - Tourmaline?

The Tourmaline ink is more on the pink side. It is less red and more pink. It ranges from light pink to dark pink and is a cooler color. 

 

Please find a comparison below.

Hmmm.  This one is a distinct possibility.  Of course it would be interesting to see a side by side with De Atramentis Dante Alighieri/Ruby Red.

Of course in seeing the comparison photo I'm now really jealous of everyone who owns a bottle of Edelstein Tourmaline....

Thanks for the first peek.  And, well, not.... [Muttering under my breath "you do NOT need more ink...."  :wallbash:]

Any ideas if this has any water resistance?  It looks lighter than something like Pilot Iroshizuku Yama Budo but like it might have the shading ability that Yama Budo has. 

 

I do like the color a lot.  I may have to purchase some of this. 


Best always,

Deborah (aka DrPenfection)

Hope to get this color one day. I prefer Blue and Brown. I will have this as my third choice.
