The ancient Egyptians considered carnelian to be one of the most calming and healing semi-precious gemstones. It was believed to elevate the mood, eliminate stress and was used as a symbol of life.
This newest ink in the 1798 collection contains rich, orange/red pigments that have made the carnelian so beloved for thousands of years.
The addition of shimmering silver pigments gives this ink an elegant and refined depth and luster.
