A rather large chunk, this Graphite specimen has the obligatory bright gray metallic color and luster, low density, and softness that is expected of this form of elemental carbon. On a broad flattened side of the specimen, there seems to be a definite direction of formation. There is no host or matrix rock-- just 6 ounces of carbon. There is a piece of paper that is included with the specimen, saying that it "was saved from the old Commercial Museum, before it burned down".(does anybody know where this may have been?)
