• Graphite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphite Graphite (/ ˈ ɡ r æ f aɪ t /), archaically referred to as plumbago, is a crystalline form of the element carbon with its atoms arranged in a hexagonal structure.It occurs naturally in this form and is the most stable form of carbon under standard conditions.Under high pressures and temperatures it converts to diamond.Graphite is used in pencils and lubricants.
  • Graphite: A mineral with extreme properties and many uses

    geology.com/minerals/graphite.shtml Graphite From Coal Seam Metamorphism ("Amorphous" Graphite) Some graphite forms from the metamorphism of coal seams. The organic material in coal is composed mainly of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, and sulfur. The heat of metamorphism destroys the organic molecules of coal, volatilizing the oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, and sulfur.

    www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/graphite Graphite definition is - a soft black lustrous form of carbon that conducts electricity and is used in lead pencils and electrolytic anodes, as a lubricant, and as a moderator in nuclear reactors.
  • Graphite | carbon | Britannica

    www.britannica.com/science/graphite-carbon Graphite, mineral consisting of carbon. Graphite has a layered structure that consists of rings of six carbon atoms arranged in widely spaced horizontal sheets. Graphite thus crystallizes in the hexagonal system, in contrast to the same element crystallizing in the octahedral or tetrahedral system

  • Graphite: The mineral Graphite information and pictures

    www.minerals.net/mineral/graphite.aspx Graphite is a mineral composed exclusively of the element carbon. Graphite has the same chemical composition as Diamond, which is also pure carbon, but the molecular structure of Graphite and Diamond is entirely different. This causes almost opposite characteristics in their physical properties.

  • Graphite: Mineral information, data and localities.

    www.mindat.org/min-1740.html Graphite usually occurs in flakes in metamorphosed rocks rich in carbon, but it can also be found in veins and in pegmatites. Where large deposits are found it is mined and used as an industrial lubricant and for 'lead' in pencils.

    www.mcmaster.com/Graphite Made of graphite in a thin oil, these lubricants penetrate wire rope and cable to the core. When the oil evaporates, it leaves behind a dry film of graphite that prevents wear and corrosion throughout the rope without attracting dust.
  • Graphite | Grafana Labs

    grafana.com/oss/graphite Graphite Graphite is an open source monitoring system first developed by Chris Davis at Orbitz in 2006, and has since been adopted by various other contributors. The Graphite ecosystem provides a scalable platform for gathering and storing time-series data, and a powerful suite of functions to query and analyze that data over time. Grafana Labs is proud to support the development of the ...
