Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine

Edelstein Aventurine is a deep green that is reminiscent of Faber-Castell’s Moss Green, albeit being ever so slightly farther from the blue end of the spectrum. I would not compare this to actual Aventurine, which comes in a great variety of colors, so it would be hard to pinpoint the exact sort of Aventurine this ink is intended to match. As a Pelikan ink, however, Aventurine is actually rather wet and this lends itself to rather smooth writing. It is prone to bleed, however. Unfortunately like most inks in this spectrum it is also not at all resistant to a soak but is interestingly receptive to a smear. Curious.
