Amazing Amethyst – Diamine

Manufacturers since 1864, Diamine Inks relocated to this purpose built ‘state of the art’ factory in Liverpool in 1925, where they successfully carried on using the traditional methods and formulas for ink production. Over the years the company has changed hands and are now located close to the world famous Aintree Race Course


Amazing Amethyst is somewhere between violet and purple. It is muted, but quite rich in the right nib. It shades in nicely– from medium pale to very dark violet-purple. This ink isn’t very wet but the flow in most pens is enjoyable. Shading is rich. Behavior is proper.
