"Obsidian Black" is a deep black sumi ink, which makes a lovely writing ink for feather quills and dip pens. It is opaque and rich black in color---far darker than modern acrylic inks. It is available in two sizes: 15 mL or 50 mL.

These fine calligraphy inks are packaged in keepsake glass bottles and raffia ribbon, then sealed with wax.

The large glass bottle measures 3 inches wide x 1.75 inches deep x 2.5 inches tall, holds 50 mL of ink, and weighs 8 oz when full. The small glass bottle measures 1.75 inches wide x 1.2 inches deep x 1.6 inches tall, holds 15 mL of ink, and weighs 2.1 oz when full. 

Other colors of calligraphy ink are available, along with other fine writing supplies.
