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. Herbin’s second 1798 ink is inspired by carnelian, a semi-precious stone prized by the ancient Egyptians for its vitality, calming powers, and ability to restore courage. Deep unsaturated colors with optimal pressure sensitivity, 1798 Inks are illuminated with shimmering flecks of silver for an elegant finish.
The ocher tint of Carnelian of Egypt, inspired by gemstones, is sublimated thanks to its silver glitter that shines a thousand lights. It brings warmth and elegance to different writings. This stone was already very popular in ancient times by the Egyptians who used to make jewels and ornaments for the most luxurious furniture. This newest ink in the 1798 collection contains rich, orange/red pigments that have made the carnelian so beloved for thousands of years. The addition of shimmering silver pigments gives this ink an elegant and refined depth and luster.
