Ink Snippet: Pelikan Edelstein Garnet

DSC_7597

Oh January, you are not the easiest month to love, here in the northern hemisphere.  It’s very cold in Chicago in January, and the hours of daylight are short, which makes this month seem extra long.

So how to make January more fun?  How about jewelry?  Because it turns out that January has a nice birth stone, the garnet.  And I happen to have two garnet inks.  The first is Pelikan Edelstein Garnet.

  1. Garnet stones sometimes do give a deep orange flash when you move them about. The first impression is the deep red you mentioned, definitely, but the orange is there too – more obvious in some lights than others and depending on cut as well.

    Either way, this ink looks great! It’s a pretty unusual red; spicy like you said, or rusty. It’s a good accent color for a steampunk palette, or an industrial one (my ink compulsion is having inks that match up into a palette so my page looks harmonious no matter how crappy my handwriting of the day).

  2. This is an ink I’ve debated, seemingly, endlessly about getting and have yet to pull the trigger. Every time I’m about to I think, “Do I really need another ink?” I know I’ll fill one pen then it’ll sit unused for months.

  3. Fingers crossed for the flight. Our only consolation is that the weather forecasters are usually wrong when they predict bad storms — aren’t they?

    Still, I should go to the grocery store to stock up. 🙂
