Pelikan Edelstein Sapphire

Sapphires are quite startling gems, with a characteristic deep blueness with a remarkable crystalline clarity. Pelikan Edelstein Sapphire inherits something of that beauty, with its shading leading to a darkness rimming the writing and lending this rather pure (if leaning on purplish) blue a character which really adds to its illusion of clarity and frankly I think this makes for a really beautiful blue. It is also fairly dry, so wet pen users the world over rejoice. This ink will smudge somewhat, so take care. And it definitely does not withstand a soaking, so don’t.
