Emerald of Chivor, a bluish tint with green highlights, obtained thanks to the twinkling of its golden glitter, shines brightly for an ever-renewed pleasure of writing. The most famous emeralds known to have a particularly sparkling beauty date from the time of the conquistadors and come from the Chivor mines in Colombia.
Blue Ocean ink, a deep and dense colour, is majestic owing to its golden glitter sparkling with a million lights. It is a tribute to the colour of the sea dear to the navigator Herbin during his various trips.
Stormy Gray is a dark colour, speckled with golden sparks which give to this tint depth and relief. It recalls the intensity of lightning on the ocean when the merchant ships, including the one of the Herbin House, were tossed by the waves.
Scarlet red, pulling, thanks to its golden glitter, slightly on the brown, Hematite Red ink is intense and powerful in order to bring majesty and elegance to writing. It evokes the colour of the wax that was before used to seal royal edicts.
The intense brown of the Carob of Cyprus ink is splattered with flame-like colour reflections to give shine to its various writings. Carob is grown in many countries, including Cyprus, where it was formerly called “black gold” as, according to legend, its therapeutic virtues allowed people consuming it to reach a very old age.
