If there is righteousness in the heart, There will be beauty in character. If there is beauty in character, There will be harmony in the home. When there is harmony in the home, There will be order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, There will be peace in the world. Bhagawan Shri Satya Sai Baba

The jury's still out on this one but I suspect there will be a re-trial!

"Meddler's 'Salamander' - almost as good as the real thing!"

Is that gold tinted sheen I'm seeing in the closeup? Nice. Although I'm not thrilled with the dry time, I've seen worse.

This is an interesting color. Thanks for the review.

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

Quite accurate representation of the real flower, I'd say. And that's the whole point, isn't it? Love the sheen, as always!

Sheen junkie, flex nib enthusiast, and all-around lover of fountain pens...

They *all* seem very representative of the actual colours of the flowers, which is something of an achievement, and it's what I've enjoyed so much about seeing reviews so far. I kind of felt that Diamine missed a trick with the Music set last year; the colours seemed so arbitrarily assigned. (Beethoven is green, Vivaldi is purple and Tchaikovsky is blue? Who knew?)

I am loving the set and this is particularly delicious in a dipped, broad, italic nib. I have some more shots which I will upload as soon as I find what I seek in them..!

Hi Ruth, yes gold sheen although I am disappointed with the shot. After 3.5 hours of playing with the pictures to get them on here I lost the will. However, it's a new day, it's a new dawn... so I will start again! Yes the dry time is pretty long, but this is a glorious shade with incredible qualities.

Agree, it is gloriously vibrant and with a beautiful gold sheen and lovely shading - really, what more can anyone want?

I loved the Music Collection, but I was somewhat confused by the links. I do think of Beethoven as that deep, silky green...
