DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions (1)
The J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary Ink Collection, first introduced in 2010 with the color Rouge Hematite, commemorates J. Herbin's 340th anniversary. The second color in this series, Bleu Ocean, is a deep blue color. Since its initial release, Bleu Ocean was reformulated and now contains flecks of gold. The ink recalls the sea voyages of J. Herbin, the fine gold particles evoking the reflection of lightening across the water as well as the dark, mysterious depths of the oceans.

J. Herbin made many journeys to India and brought special wax formulas back to Paris, leading to his shop's success as a reputable sealing wax manufacturer that served Louis XIV and gained popularity throughout France. The wax seals on the cap and front of the bottle remind us of this rich history.

This ink is the new formulation which contains gold particles.

This is a gorgeous, deep blue with a teeny hint of indigo in it. Very saturated, very wet. It does NOT have a sheen like the Rouge Hematite but it still quite lovely - I don't regret getting a bottle at all :)

A very smooth, fluid ink with very little shading, leaning a bit towards purple tones. Not a highly saturated ink, and is easy to clean out of pens. This is a very pleasing blue, and the packaging is lovely.

Not NEARLY as good of an ink overall as Rouge Hematite. It's certainly a very deep blue—if not a full-on blue/violet—but has no sheen. It's just a very saturated, dark dark blue; nothing you can't get from Diamine for half the price. Just can't help feeling that I paid for the bottle and packaging rather than the ink (just like a feel every time I buy a bottle of Iroshizuku…)

Beautiful colors, the gold is visible every time I write. I also used a little ink to make inkblot drawings and they came out beautifully. Definitely reccomend this product!
