copy pencil
   A pencil whose marking substance consists of a mixture of graphite and an aniline dye. When the pencil stroke is moistened the dye develops into a strong purple or in some cases, a blue color. The developed stroke is more difficult to erase than ordinary pencil writing. Some refer to this kind of writing instrument as an indelible pencil.
