FYI, the newest bottles...

FYI, the newest bottles of Rouge Hematite (as of this review on Sept. 8th, 2013)
have absolutely none of the gold pigment the original formulation had. I have
one bottle of the original formula and one bottle made about a year ago—the
difference is certainly visible one the page, but even in the bottle it's
obvious when looking at the pigment that's settled on the bottom of the bottle.
The newest bottles, however, don't even have any of the gold pigment, and are
MUCH lighter on the page with none of that beautiful gold sheen.
It's still a good ink with fairly heavy shading (different than the
metallic-looking sheen of the old bottles, mind you), but it's *just* a red ink
Just an FYI for those with the old bottles looking to get a new bottle.
