Pen: Lamy Safari Limited Edition 2012, Green Apple – 1.1mm Stub Nib
Ink: Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine
Paper: Rhodia dotPad
Notes: I bought this ink to go with my Pelikan M605. I hadn’t tried out the ink before buying a bottle, but I really lucked out. It’s a beautiful shade of green with great lubrication, flow and shading properties. It’s my ink of choice for the M605 as it matches the green ink window in the pen. Enjoy the review.

Lovely review. I have a bottle of Edelstein Mandarin and I was looking at this one or the Topaz but this is sure pretty!
Thanks! The ink looks even better in person. I tried out a sample of the Onyx, and wasn’t too impressed, but this stuff is great.
Very nice review, both the Pelikan 605 and the Edelstein Aventurine ink. Is it waterfast in the slightest?
I haven’t done any of the more scientific tests, but I have accidentally gotten water on the page. With my experience, this stuff is definitely not waterfast. It’s a watery ink to begin with, and it doesn’t have any permanent properties. Aventurine is just a great shade of green with nice shading properties, if you want waterproof, Noodler’s Ink should have something to fit your needs!
