Herbin 1670 Anniversary Ink - Caroube de Chypre

Caroube de Chypre ink is a dark brown with light red reflections and sparkling gold effect.

J. Herbin was an enterprising French sailor of the mid-17th century. While he was in the employ of the Compagnie des Indes Orientales, he made a number of voyages to India, collecting ingredients and formulas for his sealing wax and inks.

It is said that J. Herbin was very fond of dried carob pods and that is the reason he lived so long! As the other merchants sailing the Mediterranean Sea, he would pick them up in Cyprus, on his way back home. The carob bean is the fruit of the carob tree cultivated in the Mediterranean countries since ancient times. Carob pods are known for their great therapeutic properties and were marketed throughout Europe as the "black gold of Cyprus." This new anniversary ink is called "Caroube de Chypre" because of its intense, deep brown with a hint of red, and, of course, its gold specks.
