Hmm -- colour swatches had led me to believe that this was a green with some blue in it -- the colour on your review is one I quite like and doesn't seem very blue at all. Another green that I must try.

I don't see blue in this one. If anything, I'd say that there's a yellow tone. Pelikan Green is the one that has a tiny bit of blue (see the comparison scan).

Thanks for the review. It does look like a lovely, spring green.
May you have pens you enjoy, with plenty of paper and ink. :)

Please use only my FPN name "Gran" in your posts. Thanks very much!

Thanks to this review, I had to get my own bottle of Verdura. Your scans are bang on. This is a great green -- thank you for posting this review.

Rohrer & Klinger make some amazing inks. They have ugly-looking bottles. But colors and behavior (especially behavior) are fantastic.
