Design Spectracolors were first made by the Venus Pencil Company, formerly the American Pencil Company. I have not seen pencil sets greater than 48.Venus was bought by Faber-Castell in 1973 and in turn by Berol in 1994. With the Faber Castell label, the range of colors was expanded to 96. Spectracolors were discontinued around 1999. Sets of 96 colors are most rare. These pencils are much in demand by artists since they are creamy and thus blend well along with bright colors.
