More nerdy info:
These are brand new Parker Quink Cartridges/Refills or "Ink Reserve" as called by Parker, 1 pack of 5 cartridges. These are the original thing made in France by the Parker French Plant. Even though all fountain pen ink is water-based, even these and other Parker ink colors, the washable blue stands out a bit since the pigment is much weaker and also water-based, thus it is much easier to take out from clothes and other places. This does not mean the washable blue will come off from the paper, i.e. on paper is permanent as all other inks. The standard is a long size, which is actually the more common cartridge type by Parker, used in most if not all cartridge fountain pens made from the 60s to present. This is the highest quality ink, great flow, consistency and viscosity, easy to clean as it's water-based, does not stain the pen or react chemically with its parts if left inside even for decades. Parker Quink Ink is one of the best fountain pen inks in the world.
Since the thick matte cartridge plastic obstructs the view of the ink inside it, on Parker Cartridges the user can easily determine what color is the ink inside simply by looking at the color of the tip, the "nipple", the color of this tip precisely matches the color of ink inside.
And another one: If you want to save the environment from wasteful plastics, you can refill your used cartridges from a bottled ink as long as they are not deformed or damaged especially at the nipple where good airtight fitment to the pen is needed. Simply use a medical syringe & needle and inject 1 to 1.5 ml of ink from the tip of the cartridge, i.e. from the already penetrated cartridge nipple. Do not overfill the cartridge, there should approx. 1/4 of the cartridge reservoir filled with air. Insert the needle all the way to the bottom of the cartridge. This is not always recommended or successful and it can be a messy procedure, but its worth the effort if you use your cartridge fountain pen excessively and do not have a piston or a bladder converter.
