The color is a beautiful rich brown and I love how the ink has the faintest dusting of gold when it dries. I am a student and most of my writing is in spiral notebooks and printer paper, but it works beautifully even with my cheap paper. It flows beautifully and is a delight to write with. I love it so much that I'm picking up the Emerald of Chivor as well.
A great grey ink on its own, enhanced by some beautiful gold sparkle. There's some good shading going on in the grey, and with a really wet, broad nib, some really serious gold flake going on.
Bleeding and feathering are extremely minimal, almost nonexistent. Writing is very smooth, but not -quite- as glassy as emerald of chivor. Dry times are exceptional, under 20 seconds for a very wet, 1.1 goulet stub nib on a near-gushing noodler's ahab feed. Little to no water resistance.
It's just a great everyday ink. I've yet to run into clogging or stop/start issues with the fine stub plumix nib on my pilot metropolitan (though due to the gold particles, I wouldn't suggest keeping a pen that doesn't seal very well inked with this, but a good sealing pen will not have issues.) After you stop writing for a minute or two, invert the pen a few times to redistribute the gold particles that settle (a pilot con-40, 50, or 70 are the best converters here, as the surface tension breaking agitators also really mix the ink up FAST) and you can generally expect the first few letters after stopping writing for a few minutes to have a heavier gold content than the rest, so if you need absolute consistency, have a spare sheet of paper to put a quick mark on before resuming writing, but I personally like having the first letter of a paragraph be heavily gold embossed.
With a thick 1.1 goulet stub or flex nib, expect heavy gold inlay. With a much finer plumix stub, expect more even, interspersed gold sparkles. Don't bother using this in a really F or EF nib, it'll risk clogging and won't show off this ink's beauty (unless it's a crazy wet writer)
Don't forget to shake the bottle for 5-10 seconds before filling, as all the gold will sink to the bottom.
Even though, a little sticker on the plastic wrap around the package warns you that this ink is very saturated and that oyou shouldn't leave it lying in a pen reservoir forever... (hence I'll wait a bit until I dare put this in my Diplomat MB 149). And saturated it is! The red is deep and strong, and yet it gives off a nice shading. The color is mesmerizing. It's the red of all reds!
It's expensive, but it's not like I am going to write novels with this, or take minutes in business meetings. I may use it to annotate here and there, and do a few drawings and letters. So, even though it is pricey, I can see this mottle lasting me quite a few years.
Last (and maybe least of all) the bottle is kind of cool. Antique-looking little cube. I was afraid the red waxy knob would have to be broken, or the string cut... but as it turns out, it's a rubberized coating on the cap, and the string does not attach to it, so no wax seal to break-off. The bottle will look cool even in a couple years.
3 MONTHS EDIT --- The gold sheen is indeed there, but you need to shake the bottle quite a bit before filling, and it only works if you have tremendous flow, and areas where the ink can pool and concentrate (using an italic or a flex nib for example). Also depends on the paper. Unsurprisingly, the sheen shows better with high quality paper...
