J. Herbin Cornaline D'egypte

As a huge fan of J. Herbin inks, I was thrilled to learn about five new standard inks introduced in 2018. Additionally, there's new 1798 ink called Cornaline d'Egypte.



It comes in an elegant glass bottle that contains 50 ml of the writing fluid.

The ocher tint of Carnelian of Egypt, inspired by gemstones, is nice. i like this kind of muted oranges. It brings warmth to the writing. Because the ink contains glittering particles it should be approached as a high-mainenance ink. Sounds scary, but if you won't leave a pen filled with it in a drawer for a year I wouldn't expect any trouble.

Great review, as always. Got my bottle yesterday. Such a nice, calm orange. With a little fancy sparkle.

Great review... beautiful orange... intriguing name...

I quite like this orange, but was a bit hesitant because of the silver particles (Im not a fan of sparkling inks). But in your writing samples, these are practically invisible ... which is good. Have to compare this one with my other oranges to see whether its worth getting it... for now on the MAYBE list.

 

With your 1.1 stub it looks great. Can you give an idea if it also works with e.g. an F or M nib ? Still saturated enough to be readable ?

Its intensity calls to mind Apache Sunset and/or Sazerac. Got any of those on hand?

Great review, looks a really nice ink; looks close to Orange Indien, which I have and enjoy.

I got my wish last year with the sparkly purple from J Herbin. I'm not a huge fan of orange as it is, and this one is the kind of orange I'm less inclined to buy. I'll get this one, because I've gotten all of them so far, but it will wait.

I love glitter and I'm excited about this ink. It reminds me of the Diamine Terracotta.

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

Thank you for this great review.

 

I like J.Herbin's inks too so I bought this ink and I'm not disappointed. The colour is muted without being boring and it suits your handwriting really well.

Thank you for another great review. The colors looks like a nice rich, saturated orange, the sparkles add to the charisma, but for now the price is a bit daunting for me.

But if it's lubricating like Rouge Hematite, some day I'll put a bottle in my cart for sure. : )

Seeing the drifts of glitter piling up in the ink window of a nice pen was daunting. Love the color, but I’m reserving it for a c/c filler with a still extant service department.

I inked up MB Red Fox and JHCdE and the glitter is much better behaved.

My immediate thought when I first saw this: orange inks have a tendency to crust up if left in a pen for a month or longer. Would this one? And how would the particles affect it?

It's been in my TWSBI go for a while now with no troubles. However it is sort of boring compared to my usual choices.

Ive decided that shimmer inks must go in demonstrators because that will make it easier for me to see if they are truly clean.

 

I have a pen flush product, and found my sonic cleaner. Glad for that. I was amazed at how much Nitrogen Blue was left in a nib and feed after I spent the time to clean it. Finally got clear water.

 

The good thing about using demonstrators is Pilot Plumix pens with calligraphy nibs are super reasonably priced, and show off the sparkle. The section is clear, so easy to see.

 

Edit here, oh yeah the ink. I got Cornaline de Egypte for my birthday, and like it. I think I like the Amethyste a bit better, but Im liking the 1798 J Herbin inks.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
