As a high school student, I am definitely in the minority of pen type. Luckily, my friends tolerate my fountain pen obsession (it entertains them). I've even tried to convert a couple of them to fountain pens (to no avail). Today, a day before Christmas break, we were exchanging our Christmas gifts with each other. My girlfriend presented me with a small, heavy box. I was thoroughly confused. The box was quite heavy for such a small size. As I quizzically unwrapped it, my eyes began to glow. She got me a bottle of Emerald of Chivor!!! I had been meaning to get some for myself, but I impulsively bought a Kindle Fire with my pen budget, which, being a high school student, is quite low. The ink is amazing, and I'm super happy that she took the time to track it down. I had mentioned a "green ink with gold sparkles." This one's a keeper!

 

Edited because I had typed ones instead of one's and it was bothering me.

I love using Emerald of Chivor, so wonderful. The Hallmark Christmas cards I used this year show both the wonderful red sheen and the gold shimmer of this ink as well or maybe better than Tomoe River paper does. I used a 1.5mm Goulet nib that is super wet in my Vac-700 pen for this ink.

The right move now is to write her some letters with the ink she bought you and win her heart anew with every day.

Mentioning in the letter that the 1670 series consists of three more colors

 

Best regards.

You have found someone who gives gifts well. Congrats! We would love to see your writings with the new ink.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
