Introducing Manggis. A Diamine extreme sheen exclusive for Pen Gallery.
An incredibly deep magenta purple, Manggis bleeds out pink purples and pinks when blended with water and a strong green metallic sheen is in evidence (image right). When swabbed straight from the bottle onto cartridge paper that green sheen is even more pronounced and the purple more visible (image left).
When dry, the concentrated areas dry a metallic green. Depending on your paper surface the ink writes as a very very very deep dark purple with hints of metallic green sheen in evidence.
To be honest, I really like this ink. It is extreme in tone ranging from near black to light pinks. I appreciate that most pen users won’t ever experience this but the opportunities are there and the base colour together with the metallic green sheen is simply stunning!

Tests conducted on Bockingford 200lb rough, Rhodia dot matrix and Tamoe River papers using a Noodler’s Creeper pen.
