The initial color in this new line of fountain pen inks is the color “Amethyste de l ‘Oural” (Amethyst of the Ural Mountains), a rick deep purple with a silver sheen. Inspired by the gemstone trade of the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1798 the French Revolution was ending and a new era began. Herbin, the commercial establishment founded by Jacques Herbin in 1670, was relocated to Rue des Fossés-Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois in Paris.
