Pelikan Edelstein Jade

Jade is another gemstone that comes in various shades of green and some varieties can indeed be confused with Aventurine. This example of Edelstein Jade would be what I call Turquoise, no more and no less. It has gone enough down the sky blue route by way of green that it can only qualify as a sky blue-green. Jade has a nice shading that goes from light turquoise into a dark green that borders on moss. Its somewhat somber note actually does it credit, and it may have been a passable ink for me were it not utterly afraid of water. That said, those looking for a sober looking turquoise ink need look no further. It still is a rather nice offering.
