Lamy Crystal Inks (T53) are here!

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

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

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

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

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 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.

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 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 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!
