Lamy Peridot Fountain Pen Ink Review

 

In this 4K video I review Lamy Peridot Ink fountain pen ink. This green ink is named after the gemstone Peridot and is part of Lamy’s premium Crystal Ink Line. Lamy Peridot Ink

Peridot is a medium green ink that leans slightly towards blue. This ink is part of Lamy’s newer premium Crystal T53 ink line. Each ink in this collection is named after a different gemstone.

Available only in 30ml bottles. The Crystal bottles have a more premium appearance with a metal cap and minimal printing on the glass bottle. Each bottle is 30ml and costs $16. This comes out to $0.53/ml, a little more than double Lamy’s standard ink at $0.24/ml.

The first and only Lamy Crystal ink I have owned is Obsidian, a very rich black ink. Like Obsidian, Peridot has a dry flow. This did not cause performance issues in the pens I tested it with, a Lamy Pur with a fine nib and a Lamy Aion with a 1.9mm stub. The benefit of a dry ink should be a quick dry time and indeed Peridot drys quicker than average.

I do not have a way to test the viscosity of ink but compared to Obsidian, Peridot does not seem as thick in consistency and this is why I believe I saw more trouble free performance. 

The ink has no real sheen even when you dump ink down on the page. The amount of shading is average and I thought the ink looked best and more alive in the 1.9mm stub nib. The closest ink I have to it is Colorverse Spirit. Peridot does lean a bit more blue.

In the end, I didn’t love Peridot. It could be a good choice for someone that prefers quick drying ink but the color is not a wow and it does carry a premium price.
