I was lucky to receive a sample of the coming J.Herbin Emerald of Civor from Bureau Direct (UK)!

Thank you so much for the chance to try this amazing thing! :thumbup:

The process of filling up pens with this and the Stormy Grey is pretty much the same. Shake the bottle till you can't see any gold at the bottom, and then quikly fill your pen. This is the best was to get a good amount of gold in your pen.

Many people only use these inks in their cheaper pens, because of the particles. I could clean the Stormy Grey pretty easily, but I haven't tried to clean the Chivor yet.
So, even though I had no issues, please use these inks carefully.

Here we go with some shading, sheen and gold!

This ink is simply amazing! It needs a good paper to come alive, but be warned that you might fall in deep love with it! :wub:

Oh no! Where are the pictures? :unsure:

Holy cats, I am so glad you won that! I'd had my fingers crossed but no joy.

Darn, I must have it!

:thumbup:

It already looked awesome in previous reviews, but it really hits hard in person!

Good grief! I've seen this and I've seen that but I ain't never seen the likes of this stuff. I have one on order, secured. I may need more...though I think this will be one they will need to keep in production...or the peasants will March with their pitchforks and torches!

Thanks for the images. I still haven't 100% made up my mind about this one. The sheen is absolutely amazing, but I don't know how much I like the underlying color. I'm hoping that I will get to see an in person look at DCSS -- that's what pushed me over the edge on Stormy Grey.

Great review, Attila. It's really cool and interesting, but I also find this ink very distracting. There's a little too much going on for me, I think.

For what it's worth...I think this is the most interesting of the 1670 inks. I'm not sure how often I'd use it for correspondence but your second photo giving the review tells me it might be very interesting and certainly unique color for informal correspondence. Excellent review!

 

I've preordered a bottle...and suspect this might fly off the shelves. Good going, J Herbin!!

Well, our dear Visvamitra once loved teal inks: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/264696-four-complex-shades-of-blue/ . But I suppose his taste has changed. :lol:

It's always the best when you can see it yourself! ;)

This is not a subtle ink for sure, but it is great fun to use!

Because of this sheen, shading and gold my last two days were like

I know that even the Stormy Grey was too much for some, but I just love these :P

This will be a great ink for certificates, diplomas, etc. It's ink on steroids!

Breathe. Take one step at a time. Don't sweat the small stuff. You're not getting older, you are only moving through time. Be calm and positive.

I'm so fickle. Thought I'd like this one but the more I see it the more I think of those glitter pens my daughter used to use . . .

 

All the more for you guys.

With a finer nib and cursive writing it is more subtle. Even on Rhodia/Clairefontaine it is less in you face. :D
On more absorbent paper the sheen gets less prominent and the teal&gold combination gets the leading role.
