The most accessible range includes about 30 ink colours and there are several sites that provide colour swatches, actual written examples and individual comments on the entire range which includes ranges of all the major colour groups plus yellows and oranges. All are available in standard 80ml bottles and 30 ml 'samplers' and several also in cartridges in the 'International Standard' format suited to several brands of fountain pen.
The inks are easy-flowing and not regarded as likely to clog or cause the problems that are sometimes attributed to others. Some of the lighter colours have transparency, specifically yellow, the oranges and lighter blues and greens, which is to be expected and it is quite noticeable with this turquoise which appears not to have any green elements. With this wide a variety of colours, there is basically something for everyone and all personalities. Some of the inks are more washable than others but they are apparently all water-based and most will blur to some extent if wet, in many instances very little.
The Diamine Havasu Turquoise fountain pen ink is of a shade not generally available within any of the major brands and it was that which was the main reason for the choice. The brand is affordable and there are several on-line sources should you need them.
The inks are generally easy-flowing although there is slight variation among individual colours and colour groups and generally strong in tone although some of the lighter colours have transparency, as does this to a lesser degree but the on-line swatches show this to be rather more red in tone than personal use with nibs of various gradings would suggest. It is a true purple-brown with no distinct red tonality even after several days' allowed for 'curing'.
Although the ink is undoubtedly top-quality, the disparity in tone is a personal disappointment, hence the minor down-marking but it is not intended to reflect as a criticism.
The ink is one that writes fairly 'dry' and its lines are true to the nib's actual grading. There are several other Diamine colours, more than 100 in total. Most are available in 80 or 30ml bottles, a few only in 50ml bottles and about 20 colours as International Standard cartridges.
This is an ink that may be too similar to Syrah for personal tastes but has less strong purple tones. Red Dragon does not shade quite as readily as other reds from the range apparently will and is generally considered to be uniform across the page, which may be both an advantage or disadvantage for different users. It may be better reserved for short notes, comments, highlighting and other such uses rather than as an everyday all-purpose ink. It is probably ill-suited to correspondence and similarly unsuited for signing business documents.
The inks are generally easy-flowing and some of the lighter colours have transparency and also reflect some shading within their strokes which is only sometimes visible with this grey which is a little too deep to show it clearly.
The Diamine Grey is the sole 'light black' (not their choice of words) representative in their complete range and a fairly dark neutral tone in appearance. There are very few alternatives and some too weak to be useful. The Diamine brand is affordable and of excellent quality. Tthere are several on-line sources should you need them. The colour is sufficiently different and distinctive for it to be noticed.
