Herbin was fond of dried carob pods as a healthy food during his voyages. As with other merchants, he traded or purchased them in Cyprus.

Carob trees have been cultivated in Mediterranean countries since ancient times. Carob pods were known for their therapeutic properties and were marketed throughout Europe as the "black gold of Cyprus."

This new anniversary ink is called "Caroube de Chypre" - Cyprus Carob - because of its deep brown color. Caroube de Chypre is a dark brown ink with light red reflections and sparkling gold effect.

The 1670 Collection celebrates the rich life and adventures of Herbin, an enterprising French sailor of the mid-17th century. While he was in the employ of the Compagnie des Indes Orientales, he made a number of voyages to India, collecting ingredients and formulas for his sealing wax and inks.

This price has been reduced because a neighbouring ink bottle leaked ink and stained the bottom of the cardboard box that contains the bottle. The product itself is not affected.
