    Mine arrived and I tried it in a Lamy Nexx with a LH nib. It's a lovely, vivid green with noticeable sheen. I use mostly Rhodia Dots & TR (white) paper. The ink looks great on both but against the brilliant white of the dots paper, it looks rich and quite dark. I'm so glad I bought 2 bottles, just a little sorry I didn't buy 3.

    Wow! It was in...now it's gone! Goulet had it...I ordered another bottle from them...all OK...just yesterday. But as of their e-newsletter received this morning...it's sold out.

    Initial run is very soon to become...unobtainium!

    Look at Jetpens and Pen Boutique, they had it for sure. Also try isellpens. Maybe Fountain Pen Hospital? There are a lot of places to buy this.

    JetPens does have it...$27...and free shipping!!!


    But it's only Wednesday. I'm thinkin' by the weekend the spaces on vendor's shelves where this once stood will house only dust.

    DUST I tell you!!! (lol)

    The more I thought about it, the more I couldn't justify the price. I took it off my wish list (I know, not a common action around here). I limit my ink expenditures (I already have 15 bottles at least 1/2-filled). That's enough ink for a while.

    Received mine. I have it in a medium Pilot 92, and it's a beautiful color, although I'm not seeing any sparkles yet.

    I felt the same way until I noticed that Goulet still had samples left. I ordered two. A good compromise to keep abreast of the buzz and neither get stuck with a bottle I don't like or spend a fortune.

    Make sure you shook that bottle up REALLY well. Should be no sediment on the bottom before you fill.

    Mine arrived, put it in a medium italic. Wow. Sheen AND sparkle. The ink itself sheens around the edges. And there's definitely sparkle when viewed at an angle the color is just straight up gorgeous even without sparkle!

    My pre-ordered bottle from Goldspot arrived last week. I have tested it in both a LAMY Al-Star Broad and Jinhao 450 with medium-ish nib, I see sheen and sparkle from both pens on both Clairfontaine and Stilman and Birn papers. The only difference I notice at this point is that the ink looks more green from a dry writing LAMY B, and more blue from a wet writing Jinhao M. I have drawn a bunch of doodles with the Jinhao M, and I see both sheen and glitter. Also looks great on Clairfontaine. Hey, it's a fun ink. What can I say?

    I have not had any issues cleaning the ink from either pen, which is a nice plus. So far so good. No complaints. I think it's pretty cool. YMMV.
    Beware of oblique conclusions.
