So in my head under the banner "violet" you have those tending blue and those tending red (plus a lot of strange words such as mauve and purple whose meaning seems hard to pin down exactly?).

This is a review of the new ink from xfountainpens.com called Chesterfield Antique Orchid. I purchased this at an introductory price of USD$4.00 for 50ml. I found the ink to be very well behaved and pleasant to write with. At first I thought this would be similar to the old version of Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses (which I don't own.) But after writing a few pages of text I believe it is a near duplicate of Diamine Damson-- an ink that I have become quite fond of. You can really see the similarity in the ink smears near the bottom of the review.
