Comments: Graphite with xls an unusual specimen. I collected this specimen as well as a few others from the Bogala Graphite mine.I had a good chat to the women who were employed bagging them up for export, as I helped myself to the specimens lying around my feet. As a matter of interest this mine shaft goes down more than one thousand feet below the surface, I think it is probably the deepest in Asia? Graphite is dimorph to diamond, the softest mineral on earth H=1 to Diamond the hardest H=10. Both are Native Elements C. A great addition to the Native Elements cabinet.
