Luminance 6901 offers a range of 76 permanent colors whose leads make no compromise between lightfastness and smoothness. Every shade has been formulated using finely-ground pigments chosen for their purity, intensity and resistance to UV rays.

The Luminance 6901 leads benefit from an extreme softness which enables obtaining subtle mixings and gradations, as well as blendings.

Caran d’Ache is the only brand to offer a set of 76 colours with 61 colours classified in the best category (Lightfastness I) under standard ASTM D-6901. This classification has been developed by the American Society for Testing and Material, at the CPSA's (Colored Pencil Society of America) request to determine the lightfast colour of coloured pencils.
