Product Description

In the year 1798, the French Revolution was ending, ushering in a new era of modern ideas and discovery. At the same time, the steel nib dip pen began to replace quill pens as the primary writing instrument. Herbin, the commercial establishment founded by Jacques Herbin in 1670, relocated to expand the production and influence of their sealing wax and inks.

Cornaline d'Egypt or in English, "Carnelian of Egypt" is the latest in the new 1798 ink collection. The ink is inspired by the glassy orange colored gemstone a variant of Chalcedony, a mineral of the quartz family. The ancient Egyptians called Carnelian "The setting sun." It was believed to elevate the mood, eliminate stress and was a symbol of vitality.

Fans of the 1670 Anniversary ink collection will want to expand their collection with this saturated orange/red color that exhibits the infamous Herbin shimmer. The new 1798 ink bottle has a wider mouth for easier filling access.

  • 50mL Glass bottle of fountain pen ink
  • Hand-Dipped Wax Seal on bottle, stamped with "1798"
  • Highly Saturated ink should be given extra care when cleaning your pens after use.
  • Be sure not to mix this ink with other fountain pen inks.
