From the album: Shades of colourMy scanner was challenged as it is to capture any colour differences at all between the first five inks, so I didn't perform any colour correction (which would darken the image and make the differences even less discernible), but only left the panels of colour reference patches from the scan in the image.

MONTEVERDE MULBERRY NOIR Monteverde Mulberry Noir is part of the new series of Monteverde inks called the "Noir" series. It is a nice dark purple shade which leans towards blue without being over-saturated. The ink is well behaved in the pens that I have used it in and flowed nicely from the nib. It does have some lubrication. It is reasonably quick drying, yet seems to have a bit of water resistance (I unintentionally soaked the page in water for 30 minutes. The letters were quite readable although blurred. The page fell apart when taking it out of the water). This first review is a scan which really brings out the purple. The next is a photo taken under LED lighting. I think this is more consistent with the actual color. This is written on Tomoe River paper: This is written on Rhodia paper:
