The exclusive 1798 ink collection celebrates the year Jacques Herbin first introduced his own line of quality inks, an important step in the history of the brand. The inaugural Jacques Herbin 1798 ink is named for the magnificent amethysts of the Ural Mountains, which were favored wares in the 16th and 17th century gemstone trade. Deep unsaturated colors with optimal pressure sensitivity, 1798 Inks are illuminated with shimmering flecks of silver for an elegant finish.
"Amethyste De L'Oural" (Ural Mountain Amethyst) is the first ink in the new Jacques Herbin 1798 Inks Collection. 1798 commemorates a special year in the history of Herbin, and a turning point in the history of France. "Amethyste" is a deep rich purple in the velvety hue of a rare gemstone. A silver mist provides a lustrous shimmering effect. "Amethyste De L'Oural" suggests the color of royalty. This ancient gemstone from the gates of Asia was prized for its calming, meditative and lucid dreaming qualities.
