This is a beautiful ink by J. Herbin, the oldest name in ink production, established in 1670. This gorgeous Fountain Pen Ink comes in a 50ml glass bottle. The ink is non-toxic, pH neutral and is handmade in France. Herbin was fond of dried carob pods as a healthy food during his voyages. As with other merchants, he traded or purchased them in Cyprus. Carob trees have been cultivated in Mediterranean countries since ancient times. The pods were known for their therapeutic properties and were marketed throughout Europe as the "black gold of Cyprus."
Caroube de Chypre (Cyprus Carob) is a dark brown ink with light red reflections and sparkling gold effect.
