  This is the most incredible..., January 7, 2012
This is the most incredible red ink I've ever seen. I believe that the pigment is partly derived from the actual hematite stone. People have said in other reviews that there seems to maybe be some gold in the ink but I believe, after having seen the examples of hematite, that it is hematite dust. And like Platinum's Carbon Black this adds a density and beauty that other inks don't have. I understand that it may only work in certain pens (like carbon black) but it is worth finding one of those pens. I use only Platinum Pens, especially the "Music" pen and have no problems. And the contrast between the 2 inks is extremely dramatic on the same page. I like to switch from one to the other while taking my notes simply because it creates such a beautiful effect. But I can see how some might be put off by the color since it is extremely "bloody". I am going to have to get some more before too long to make sure I don't run out as this is the anniversary edition and that seems to insinuate that it is a temporary thing. 50 mls is a lot of ink but I write a lot of notes and I don't think I will ever grow tired of it.
