We discuss new results based on RI and JHK photometry for 888 and 204 carbon stars, respectively, of the 1035 C stars found by Blanco and his collaborators in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Bolometric magnitudes and effective temperatures for these stars are calculated and compared with theoretical predictions. We find a spatial gradient in the transition luminosity between M and C type stars. This has implications for the age of the most recent major epoch of star formation in the LMC.
