Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.

Graphite is a stone found within certain metamorphic layers.

Graphite is flammable on contact with magma but will never melt, meaning graphite on fire makes an excellent long-burning flame - a single boulder will burn for about nine and a half months before being consumed. This quality has applications in some fire-based traps.

In real life[edit]

Graphite is the most common form of carbon under standard Earth temperatures and pressures. It sits around 1.5 on the Mohs scale, making it a very soft substance. Synthetic Graphite is relatively easy to produce via compression.

Graphite's applications include steelmaking, lubricants, batteries, and of course, pencil "lead."
