Blackstone Barrier Reef Blue fountain pen ink is a lively, bright blue inspired by the beautiful, myriad blue colours of the waters of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef system. A place of stunning beauty and rich biodiversity.
Blackstone Black Stump Black fountain pen ink is a dark, purple black ink inspired by the Australian expression ‘Beyond the Black Stump’. The Black Stump is an imaginary point beyond which the country was considered remote or uncivilised and came about as a result of early settlers using fire to clear land for grazing and farming.
Blackstone Daintree Green fountain pen ink is a deep, rich green ink inspired by the deep, rich greens of the Daintree Rainforest in north east Australia. Covering 12,000 sq km, the Daintree Rainforest is the largest, contiguous area of tropical rainforest in Australia.
Blackstone Golden Wattle is a golden yellow ink inspired by the flowers of the Golden Wattle (Acacia Pycnantha). The golden wattle is Australia’s Floral Emblem and is an Australian native tree that grows to about 8m in height. From late winter to early summer the trees are completely covered with their bright golden yellow flowers. It’s well behaved ink and on some papers with broad nibs or a wet pen it will show interesting dark orange halo effects but like many yellow inks it may crystallize on some nibs. This is completely harmless and can be wiped off easily.
Blackstone Sydney Harbour Blue fountain pen ink is a dark grayish blue ink inspired by the grey blue waters of Sydney Harbour when the sky is overcast on a rainy day down on the harbour.
Blackstone Uluru Red fountain pen ink is a rich red ink inspired by the deep, red colour of Uluru at sunset. Uluru is technically an inselberg (island mountain), 348m high and 9.4km in circumference, famous for appearing to be different colours ranging from tan to dark purple at different times of the day and year and depending on weather conditions.
Blackstone fountain pen ink is packaged in reusable Polypropylene bottles. Polypropylene is one of the toughest plastics in existence and these bottles are practically indestructible. These bottle can be re-purposed as ink carry or storage bottles and Polypropylene is completely recyclable.
