The Nataraj Marble pencil is one that we've been selling since day one, because not only are they beautiful, but also because each one is diffferent from the next! We haven't figured out quite how these are painted, but we're mesmerized by the variation you can find in a single box. The core is the same as the other Nataraj HB pencils, and is firm, but dark. These pencils come in a box with a sharpener and an eraser.
Nataraj is the original brand under Hindustan Pencils, which makes about 8.5 million pencils a day across their many facilities in India. Not only do they make every part of the pencil, but they also grow and harvest their own native woods from which they make the wood casings for their pencils. Their most recognizable model, the Ruby 621 is iconic in India in the same way the Ticonderoga is in the U.S.
