Crayola Glitter Crayons: What's Inside the Box

I love collecting the Crayola Glitter crayons. The glitter crayons have small specs of shiny material in them to help them sparkle when the crayon is used. I must admit I love the Silver Swirls and the GemTones even more. They were the first attempts at Glitter crayons.  There was something magical about the silver swirls.  The Glitter and metallic crayola are the only ones around still.  My kids love playing with these and so do I. Since then Crayola has expanded this idea to chalk and glitter glue, which is one of my favorites.

There are two boxes that are in this post.  One box is large glitter crayons that were released in Canada and the other is a 16 box of Crayola crayons.

The crayon wrappers do not contain color names.  I have inferred some from the Star Wars 64 crayon boxes where the crayons were named. I attempted to buy a box of named glitter crayons on eBay but someone else snatched it.

  1. Glitter crayons[edit]
    In 1997, Crayola released Crayons with Glitter as part of a Special Effects crayons package. Starting as late as 1999, their crayon names don't appear on the crayon wrappers. In the below list, the background represents crayon color, and the highlighted "square of glitter" around text represents glitter color.[22]
