Very pretty ink. In my experience it's very similar to Lamy Crystal Amazonite, with a bit less sheen.

Wow! want to see what your 'full' reviews look like! Its wonderful and informative, and the comparisons are excellent. Many thanks. 

It seems like Monteverde California teal may be similar (and Diamine Aurora Borealis may be bluer than this).  What you said about this ink (;its greener than any teal ink I've tried') has also been said (or similar observations) by those who reviewed the California Teal. I'm interested one of this type of green, but its hard to get samples in India....

Its like a blue-shifted green in daylight. Because the sheen in red-magenta in color, and the ink sheens easily, the sheen can cancel out the greenness of the ink in artificial indoor light, so the writing looks less green and more bluish teal. Depends on paper, pen, amount of ink used, and amount of sheen. On Tomoe River this effect is prominent. On a Goulet Pens video showcasing this ink, its noted to be even more green than Lamy Amazonite.

“I admit it, I'm surprised that fountain pens are a hobby. ... it's a bit like stumbling into a fork convention - when you've used a fork all your life.”
