    Graphite A Mineral With Extreme Properties And Many Uses

    Graphite is a mineral that forms when carbon is subjected to heat and pressure in Earths crust and in the upper mantle. Pressures in the range of 75000 pounds per square inch and temperatures in the range of 750 degrees Celsius are needed to produce graphite. These correspond to the granulite metamorphic facies
