Antique Purple ink

Our Antique purple ink is produced according to an old recipe from blue wood and verdigris by a German manufacturer.

When using this ink you will notice that it is first only slightly purple, but within a few hours it will turn dark when dry.

The purple ink bottle is closed with a Roman wax seal on the cork. The seal shows the God Mercury, the God of the poets and writers, and was made with a Roman Signet Ring in our workshop.

Each bottle of purple ink is a real unique item.

Short info of the purple ink:

In antiquity, this ink was produced from the juice of the purple worm. Of course we are not using worms any longer, but a subsituting harmless recipe.

This purple ink was regarded as sacred in antiquity, and in late Roman times was reserved for the Emperor and his court.
