O Robert Oster’s shop website Australian Sky Blue is described as follows: Australian Sky Blue flows on like a turquoise, dries on with all of the character and beauty of the wide Australian sky“. 

I’m not really into turquoises / bright blue turquoises so I dislike the color. The ink behaves well but I believe it may be too light, especially in drier pens.
