After my disappointment with Moonstone, which a lot of other people seem crazy about :), I approached this ink with less expectation. Charoite set the bar extremely high! Out of the two remaining that I purchased, Garnet and Fire Opal were left to try. I went with Garnet.
It comes in the Monteverde packaging that really wants you to know that it has their ITF technology.
The bottle is a generous 90ML size.
For this review I decided to ink up my Sailor Carrot. No better reason than it was in need of ink ^_^

It wasn’t the color I was expecting, but I should have been since it looks exactly like the label. I’ve typically thought of garnet in terms of deep red, but this color has a lot of pink in it. Which isn’t an issue at all since I love pink ^_^. It has a nice sheen on the blob, sadly I wasn’t able to get this to translate to regular writing. The shading however, carries the day, it has lots of light and dark tones but is not overwhelming.
I leave you now with a photo of some pretty epic potato skins #yum.
