Van Dieman's The Wilderness Series Hastings Caves - 30ml Shimmer Ink

  • $14.95


Tasmania is home to some of the deepest and longest cave systems in the world. When brightly lit, this huge complex of dolomite caves at the southern most tip of Tasmania shines a golden brown and glistens with its countless delicate stalactites. Hastings is also home to a natural hot spring that warms the nearby rivers year-round to 280C. We were inspired by the golden brown and honey tones this natural wonder possesses and wanted to illustrate its beautiful lustre. This ink shades from faintest yellow to dark amber, with greenish edging sheens and light silver shimmer.

Van Dieman's Wilderness Series is ten fountain pen inks inspired by the majestic, beautiful and ofttimes humbling wonders that await in the Tasmanian wilds. As an extension of our original Van Dieman's Colours of Tasmania, and as a series unto itself, we created the Wilderness Series to encapsulate the natural colours of this awe-inspiring and untouched southern land.

About Van Dieman's Ink

Van Dieman's Ink is an Australian owned and operated company situated in Launceston Tasmania, and is also an affiliate of JINHAO Pens Australia, which is also Australian owned and operated, and retails the high quality Fountain Pens produced by JINHAO. Our water based fountain pen inks are mixed utilizing a method that maximizes colour longevity, improves flow viscosity and generates a sumptuously enjoyable writing experience, but also avoids the unpleasant acrid smell that fountain pen ink is generally well known for. In line with our own love for this great state of Tasmania, Van Dieman's Inks try to encapsulate some of the natural beauty this land has to offer.

Each of the dozen colours on offer is designed from and named after a location, natural aspect or product of Tasmania. From our best-selling "Devil Black", an aggressive little ink with an equally notorious namesake, to our majestic, well cherished and protected "Styx Valley Forest Green", to our chilled and serene "Freycinet Aquamarine" and our deliciously tempting "Tamar Pinot Noir Wine Red", Van Dieman's inks are both a cut above the rest and a step outside the norm. 

Be adventurous and explore the possibilities these inks have to offer.
