Lamy Crystal Inks (T53) are here!

Pen Boutique recently received all ten Lamy Crystal inks. Let’s check them out!


Agate
This light gray ink has a noticeable yellow undertone. This is probably one of my favorites!

Amazonite
A lovely teal color that has a good bit of shading. I would place this ink on the bluer end of the teal spectrum.

Azurite
Looking at some swabs online, it would seem like this ink ranges from a bright ultramarine color to a very deep, dark blue with a lot of olive green shading. In our own swab, we didn’t see any of the green sheen appear, and the color was definitely more of a bluish purple.

Benitoite
Benitoite is a bit of a light blue-black, almost a blue-gray, that shades pretty well. Personally, when it comes to blue-black inks, I prefer ones that shade a lot, so this one seems pretty nice to me.

Beryl
Beryl is a vibrant fuchsia color that reminds me of bougainvillea. Another one of my favorites. Reminds me of Rose Cyclamen from J. Herbin.

Obsidian
Obsidian is the black ink of the line. If I had to assign a color to it, I’d say it has the tiniest hint of green or yellow. It definitely strikes me as a darker black than Lamy’s standard black ink.

Peridot
Peridot is a nice, saturated green color. In others’ swabs, it almost appears as a green-black, but for us, it’s quite bright. It looks similar to J. Herbin Lierre Sauvage.

Rhodonite
As many have noted, Rhodonite is almost identical to Lamy’s Vibrant Pink ink. It’s a bright hot-pink color with some mild gold sheen.

Ruby
Ruby is the red, but it seems less saturated than I would expect. It also doesn’t have a lot of shading on our swab.

Topaz

Topaz is a soft brown color that I would liken to Hazelnut Brown from Graf von Faber-Castell.

Okay, that's all of them! What do you think of this new line of inks? What's your favorite one? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
