Wikipedia article

This article is about an older 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, graphite is used for pencil "lead". It is unknown if this will be implemented once writing is added.
