Scabiosa is an Iron Gall ink, over time as the ink oxidises it will darken, this also gives it water resistant properties where the colour die may run but black will remain. These are safe for modern pens if used frequently and the pen is kept capped. It is not recommended to store Scabiosa in the pan for long periods of time.

A note on the usage of Iron Gall inks, whilst Rohrer & Klingner inks are designed to be stable and safe for modern pens we do not recommend using them in vintage pens, or leaving them stored in pens for long periods. Steel nib pens are susceptible to corrosion if stored with Iron Gall in them. Iron Gall inks should also not be returned to the bottle when emptied if they have been in the pen awhile, this may reduce the stability of the ink and lead to the build up of sediment. Any bottles containing sediment or sludge should not be used. This ink should be kept sealed and out of sunlight. For further notes KWZ has put together an exceptional guide on modern Iron Gall inks.
