Fantastic red Crayola crayon. Heavy plastic frame with thick paper label. Made by Think Big!. This is a rare vintage piece. Excellent vintage condition. Great pop art! Blue crayon available in separate listing.
GemTones were first released in Canada and then made available in the United States in 1993. During these years Crayola was experimenting with glitter crayons. It is unknown what medium was used for the glitter effect. I still have my box of GemTones from my childhood and bought another box from eBay recently. My box from my childhood is definitely used. The first box did included a regular black crayon. I think Crayola included it to use for outlining the drawings.
