The history of violet ink: since the Napoleon I era, French students wrote in purple ink, which was the cheapest ink. This particular ink was made with methyl violet, a solution known for its disinfectant properties. Until 1970, steel nib pens were mandatory writing instruments in French colleges and universities.
