Van Dieman's Underwater is the 7th series from Van Dieman’s Ink. Inspired by the Flora, Fauna, regions and mystery of the ocean, this collection of sixteen fountain pen and shimmer inks contains some of our most unique and experimental inks to date.
Bioluminescence is named after the phenomenon of an incredible blue glowing algae that blooms regularly around Tasmania. This ink is a rich dark blue ink that appears black on almost all papers, with an outstanding red sheen that almost outshines the undercolour on acid free papers, and vibrant blue shimmer. The saturation, under hue, sheen and shimmer combine to become a complex multilayer ink that mimics the appearance of bright blue glowing sea shimmer on a dark blue near-black ocean reflecting the last red light of dusk.

We have massively lowered our shipping rates worldwide. We have done away with our previous weight based global shipping and now brought in flat rate shipping, at a much lower rate overall. The flat rate is dependent on region but regardless of destination it is a far more affordable pricing for shipping.
