    I'm still in and don't mind the wait either. I just have to remember to check back for status. Work is so hectic right now it's consuming most waking moments. (That and my 7th grader who is done with school this week)

    Sheaffer Skrip Turquoise is pretty close to Peacock Blue, at least to my fading brain cells anyway. And it is a current production ink.

    ac12 - We (myself and my colleague) saw that, but it "isn't the same" as the old. There is enough difference to make someone nostalgic for that old color. She has found some (at the Chicago Pen Show a couple of weeks ago) but if we find more, she is still likely interested.

    Go onto eBay and set the search engine to look for Sheaffer Peacock Blue ink. Sometimes you get garbage, but other times you may get a good hit.
    I did then when I was looking for Sheaffer Emerald Green ink. It took a while, but I finally got a couple bottles at a reasonable price, and I was happy.

    I found some for you guys, but someone has to front for the 12 bottles, then break the pack.

    250 USD per 12 bottles is slightly pricey.

    The question is, is Peacock blue worth $20.83 per bottle, considering that they do not make it anymore.
    I've seen adds for more than that for the Emerald Green.

    They are very nice bottles with that cap too. However, please note that this seller sends his inks in a tube so he takes the bottle out of the box then packs the flattened box and bottle in the tube. The box isn't flat when you try to reconstruct it.

    The old South Seas Blue is now called Inspired Blue.

    I have the mix of Navajo Turquoise and Inspired Blue as well. It is close enough for me, and cheap. 1/2 of each color. It is well behaved, and very pretty. Funny, I just inked up a pen with that faux Peacock Blue yesterday. Today I refilled it, and am still using it. Then I come across this thread this evening. I also like Diamine-Havasu Turquoise, J. Herbin-Bleu Pervenche, and Diamine-Steel Blue. The Steel Blue is more of a greenish turquoise though. Another good one is Edelstein-Topaz, but I don't own that one. All of those I mentioned are fantastic turquoise colors.
