Pelikan has announced today not only the new Classic 200 Pastel-Green pens, but also

the upcoming Pelikan Edelstein ink of the year 2020 - Moonstone.

The Pelikan Edelstein Ink of the Year 2020 Moonstone will be available in March 2020 and

most probably we will see matching Classic 200 or 205 pens being announced later in 2020.

As the ink bottle will feature a matt silver cap maybe the matching pen will come with matt 

silver nib and clip? That might be something new.

Moonstone looks like a cross between a pearl and an opal :)

What's the ink equivalent? Milky grey with rainbow mica sparkly bits? :D

I wish I could tell from the photos whether it's going to be a dark grey or a silver grey.  "Moonstone" suggests a silver grey.  

Sigh.  I guess we'll have to wait until March....

Grey with silver shimmer bits would be unique :)


Then again was so hopeful this years Star Ruby would be red with shimmer bits like the M200.

What arrived in my bottle is just pink. Hmm...

I dislike most shimmer inks, so I hope it isn't. There's diamine moon dust for that.

 

Here's hoping it's just a rich warm grey.

I missed this part: "most probably we will see matching Classic 200 or 205 pens being announced later in 2020.

"

 

The m205 sounds really appealing.

I can't help but think of Monteverde Moonstone, which is a kind of grayish taupe I enjoy. 

 

Looking forward to seeing writing samples made with Pelikan Moonstone.  As a fan of gray inks, I hope this one will be interesting, hopefully with some extra tints peeking through.  The promo picture shows bits of teal and purple, and it could go either way with those.  For instance Graf von Faber-Castell Stone Grey has both tealy and purple-ish constituent dyes in chromatography and looks somewhat pink-brown tinted while wet--much like Iroshizuku Kiri-Same--but it dries to very neutral gray in writing.

They are usually pretty careful about choosing an image that reflects the color itself. 

Judging from the background selected, I'm guessing a light- to mid-grey with blue or possibly green undertones.

Lighter in color than Tanzanite, but still reasonably saturated would be nice.

Thank you Fritz Schimpf for letting us know!  This looks really interesting.  I am a huge fan of greys.

Interesting & probably worth the waiting... Maybe the matching ink for the new Stresemann also?
Would be nice if they would add some (only some!) shimmer and colour side effects like a very decent greenish or blueish effect...

I’d prefer no shimmer. In small amounts it’s difficult to see anyway.

Hi,

 

thank you, Fritz for the news. :-)

 

It should be a hard task to make a moonstone ink.

The stones I saw were colored in light warn gray with strong blueish chatoyance / reflections at certain angles of illumination.

 

Best

Jens

The ink appears to shade quite a bit, in a very interesting fashion. The description of a "warm" grey intrigues me.

It is difficult to see in the sample. Is there a slight brown/taupe tone to the ink?

Interesting, I wonder how it compares to Iroshizuku Kiri-Same in color range.  I love Kiri Same, though not its feathering.

Thank you for your kind comments. 

 

Please find a comparison with different grey inks below. 

 

 

 

Moonstone-vs-Greys.jpg

 

 

 

All of these grey inks have their own shade of grey and the differences can be

distinguished when written with a broad nib. 

 

Sadly even a high resolution scanner is not really able to reproduce the colors.

 

Best regards,

Fritz Schimpf
