Graphite is known to be the natural allotropic form of carbon that appears to be greyish-black in color. This extremely soft mineral is usually found in the igneous and metamorphic rocks. Due to its lowers specific gravity, the mentioned element has the capability of cleaving with very light pressure. It is opaque in nature possessing lustrous black sheen. Graphite is unique from other elements in the way as it possess both the properties of metallic and non-metallic characteristics due to its crystalline structure. This being the reason, it has high electrical and thermal conductivity with chemically and refractory inertness. As the offered range has the capability of absorbing X-Rays, it finds usage in the nuclear applications. Moreover, its stability at higher temperatures makes it an ideal choice to be used for the production of refractory bricks.
