Amethyst de l’Oural is J. Herbin 2017 1670 Shimmering ink entry. There have been many companies jumping on the shimmering ink bandwagon most notably De Atramentis and Robert Oster but J. Herbin is the original.
Amethyst de l’Oural is a purple ink with silver dust. For the most part it’s a pretty ink but it isn’t as eye-catching as Emerald of Chivor. The purple by itself isn’t special. It doesn’t shade much. J. Herbin also updated the packaging. I like the new look but am disappointed by the ink itself. It’s also flinky in my Faber-Castell Loom and TWSBI Mini
