After the amazing experience I had with Monteverde Charoite I was really excited to try Moonstone.
I bought a 30ML bottle instead of a 90ML because I was unsure about the color. The bottle is super cute though 🙂 Tiny and informative, I love that the color is very apparent when looking at it.
From the bottle it looked to be a brown color, which confused me a little because I associate Moonstone with a more silver type color, but then I thought well maybe it’ll sheen moonlight ^_^.
For this review I decided to ink up my Pelikan M205 White with M Nib. It’s a reliable and wet writer, and it was empty.
Line going down on 68GSM TR:
This ink uses the same ITF technology that the Charoite did and exhibited those wonderful characteristics, however I wasn’t blown away this time. The ink goes on a greenish brown and dries to a lighter brown with very average shading and no sheen during normal writing. In the blob there is an opaque film type effect over the ink. Totally underwhelmed, glad that I only have 30ML of this one 😦 I can sort of see the moon like quality in the white glow, but still not for me. I’m glad that I got to try it though, and I am praying for a better experience with Garnet which is the next from this collection I am planning to try ^_^.
