Review: Diamine Turquoise Fountain Pen Ink

Diamine Aqua Blue ink

Diamine Turquoise (The page should say "Turquoise" - Whoops!) tested in a medium nibbed Lamy Safari fountain pen in an off-white ruled Paperblanks journal.

Great flow - though everything flows great in a medium nibbed Safari! Saturated with some shading.

Very similar to the Diamine Aqua Blue. Maybe a hair lighter and brighter. I would probably have a difficult time telling them apart. Aqua Blue might be a smidge more green...

I think I like the Mediterranean Blue better - this turquoise might be a tad bright for me.

Buy Diamine Inks in the UK at The Writing Desk or directly from Diamine and in the US from The Pear Tree Pen Company Ink is sold in 80ml glass bottles, 30 ml plastic bottles, and selected colors are available in cartridge form.

It reminds me of Waterman's South Seas Blue, which I have inked up in a ... wait for it ... medium-nibbed Safari.
