Shimmering(50ml)
Make sure you shake or rattle the glittering particles in the bottle gently so you can see the shimmer that comes with the ink. Also gently rattle the pen before you write so that the glittering particles are suspended in the ink to see the shimmer on paper when you write. The shimmer is more noticeable doing this on paper especially with a wide nib size.

The dark blue ink is very nice on paper with subtle silver glitter. Sometimes you have to have the light hit the ink on the paper at a certain angle to notice the glitter in the written words.

Bottled Ink(80ml)
Diamine Marine is a pleasant aqua hue, more greenish when compared to something like Noodler's Navajo Turquoise. I'm using it in a Monteverde Giant Sequoia pen with a 1.1mm stub nib, and in this situation it is rather dry with little shading, and I don't believe you will get any sheen out of it. I believe that with a finer, wetter nib you will be able to get some decent shading. Anyway, I do like this ink along with the other Monteverde colors I've tried so far.

This ink just makes me happy! Maybe not for everyone but I love it. Flows well and shimmers on the page. It would make my date book happy too if it had emotions.

Love the Diamine inks - this one has a bit of a shimmer that I wasn't expecting and is even more beautiful than I thought. Goes onto the paper a little darker than I had anticipated, but dries with a really pretty sheen. I've used with fine nibs with no problems.

Shimmering(50ml)
I have several of these inks and all are really beautiful, even in fine nibs. Making writing fun :-) Some folks comment about clogging with the shimmer inks, but I have not experienced that problem with Pilot Metropolitan, Nemosine, Noodler's or Jinhao 750 or 450 pens I have, but they are a little slow to start in the Monteverde pens (Monza, Rodeo Drive) for me (but those pens are usually slow to start for me with any ink, so...

I've only tried the Firefly. I make sure to gently roll the pen in my fingers to agitate the shimmer. It's really a beautiful effect and with a broad nib, it writes wonderfully.

150th Anniversary
I got the Dark Forest and Burgundy Royale. First off, very well behaved inks. No learning curve. They worked perfectly in a EF all the way to a Broad. Both have a slight sheen which is nice for visual interest. Also both inks I got have a color shift that at times is very faint and others will catch your eye. :) This I have heard makes reading my letters very enjoyable for the receiving party. I will say that if you are looking for a deep rich red, maybe take a look at their other inks. It is a very good representation of Burgundy. Dark Forest, a green so dark that it looks black, until it's green. Yes, I like both.

Bottled Ink(30ml)
I got 2 different ones. Grey and Steel Blue. The Steel Blue is a good ink. Has some color shift and some sheen. Not as much as say Organic Studios but it's still there to a point where it's a visually interesting ink. The Grey... I'm not feeling it. I'm not. I've used other Diamine inks and they have all been really solid performers but the Grey... It seems to be a "dry" ink, and it increases the feedback to a point where it's almost as if the pen nib is scratching the paper. Maybe I need to try it again in a M or stub nib pen and see. No, I used a known good pen to test with a F/M sized nib. One that usually is very behaved no matter which ink I use in it. So this is a split review. Generally speaking, Diamine has good inks. The grey... eh, in my opinion, not so much.

Shimmering(50ml)
Can somebody post something about how they are using these inks in a fountain pen? Please? The colors are just gorgeous, the shimmer.. Yeah, makes me cockles twitter a bit. However, I've tried several in my pens (M nib) and the beginning is wonderful, but by the time I get to the end of the ink in the converter (with agitators) the shimmer is either gone or very very little. Still great inks! I'm cool with using a dip pen to get that shimmer.

Bottled Ink(80ml)
I bought the 80 ml bottles of Grey and Pumpkin. The grey is my first grey ever. Didn't like it at first but it's growing on me slowly and surely. I've filled it in a fine nibbed pen and will progress to a medium nibbed one soon. Beginning to like it on fine and I think it'll look good with the medium too. Pumpkin on the other hand is just plain brilliant!! Very bright color, in-your-face. Have this in a medium nibbed pen but want to see it in a fine nibbed one. both have excellent flow and dry quickly enough for my use. Not much shading that I noticed in either ink. I suspect the grey does shade a bit but I cant make out for sure with the fine nib I'm using right now.

I went through a lot of issues trying to get the shipment outside the US and Ron was there all the while sorting out the problems and I'm grateful for his support (in spite of my many emails and calls to him with loads of probably impertinent questions and difficulties I was having).

Certainly recommend the products. Definitely recommend PenChalet.com for all related purchases

Bottled Ink(80ml)
I purchased the Marine color ink. It is super wet flowing, and a thin watery ink. The color is great - a turquoise with a hint of green. The ink is easy to clean out of pens, though sticks to skin a bit. The 80ml bottle is pretty good, with a wide opening and decent shape for filling. The ink tends to bleed on absorbent paper.

I love the colour of this ink, but I wouldn't call it "pumpkin" coloured. It's more of a red/orange, but a beautiful vibrant shade that like all the Diamine inks behaves very well.
