Four Berol-era Eagle Verithins. Orange 737, Green 739, Carmine Red 745, True Blue 758


Verithin is a brand of pencils made by PrismaColor. Available in 40 colors, Verithin Pencils are a wax-based colored pencil that are marketed as having a firmer / harder lead than standard Prismacolor pencils, and can be sharpened to a fine point with less crumbling. They are useful for making lines and fine details. They are hexagonal (six-sided). Despite being available in 40 colors, they don't seem to ever have been available in sets larger than 36; the four additional colors (Blue Violet; Non-Photo Blue; Magenta; and Red / Blue) must be purchased separately.

Verithin HistoryEdit

Before Prismacolor, they were previously known as Berol Verithin of Berol Pencil Co., and before that, known as "Eagle Verithin", manufactured by Eagle Pencil Co. For a long time the pencils were tipped with a red-banded metal ferrule, although this has been discontinued.
