Inspired by Kyanite, a noble and luxurious mineral discovered in Nepal, Herbin Kyanite du Nepal is the newest 1798 Anniversary ink and the gorgeous turquoise blue color is sure to be a gem in your collection.

According to Herbin, Kyanite is a unique and amazing mineral: “…an exotic gem and one of the two minerals on the planet that neither accumulates nor retains negative energy. It is believed to promote positive communication and encourage self-expression.” What better muse could there be for your writing?

Herbin Kyanite du Nepal is a bright, cheery blue with a delightfully rich deep magenta sheen and glittering silver shimmer particles. It is a highly saturated ink, so there isn’t a ton of shading potential, but the sheen is quite exciting and evident in areas of ink pooling. The shimmer is best shown on fountain pen friendly paper with a wide, wet flowing pen and the dry time is definitely on the longer side. However, the sacrifice in time is well worth having an ink as rich and vibrant as this is.

Totally worth it if you ask us!

A special note:

Due to the amount of particulate in this ink used to achieve the sparking look, you may experience restricted ink flow in some of your pens. We recommend shaking the ink thoroughly before filling and gently rolling the pen in your hands often to keep the shimmer effect consistent. This will also help prevent clogging. You will also want to be diligent about cleaning and maintaining your pen when using this ink.


True to Jacques Herbin branding, this ink comes in an elegant 50ml glass bottle accented with a wax seal and wax coated cap. The bottles will retail for $29.95 and you can also pick up a 2ml sample for $2.25.
