Jacques Herbin 1670 Violet Imperial, 50 mL bottled fountain pen ink 

Because of the particles in this ink that give it is beautiful colors, Lemur Ink recommends shaking the bottle ever so gently (with the cap on) before filling your fountain pen. Prior to writing, gently rock, roll, or twirl your pen in your hand (see: Iceman, Top Gun, 1986) to mix the particles that may have settled. Some users of this ink may experience feed clogging if left unused for a period of time. Exercise caution and practice good pen hygiene when using any shimmering ink.

With a range of five luminous shades, Jacques Herbin is pleased to announce the launch of the new 1670 ink, Violet Impérial, with bluish reflections and a thousand sparkling shimmers, for the pleasure of your writing.

Because of the scarcity of dyes, this color, a symbol of luxury but also of mystery, was used by the Emperor and his family under the Roman Empire and then by the various royalties. King Louis XIV, under whom Jacques Herbin was founded, used it for his clothes during certain periods of his life. 

This fresh and elegant color is currently very popular, particularly in decoration and design.
