Graphite
Formula: C
Reference: I have updated the presentation of the Graphite mineral using what our father had written on his personal notebook. It seems obvious that this specimen comes from Travancore because it is a very old sample that was given to our father by the BRGM of Rabat in the sixties, when Jacques E. Dietrich, his dear friend worked there. In order not to be too approximate, I have searched through the internet, and I have found an article by John Coggin Brown which will be very intersting for you to read. Apparently, this sample is very old. The site you should visit is " Mineral wealth: Part III. Materials used in building construction... site : books.google.fr/books?isbn=8182054850 . The text says :" Discovered in Travancore in the 1840, the mineral was mined there in the early years of the present century by the Morgan Crucible Co. Ltd, and between 1901, when regular returns first became available, and 1911 when operations ceased, 35,000 tons had been produced... This article appears page 437 of the book. I do hope this piece of information will allow you to enlarge your information and show your members a real old timer from a place that is not yet mentioned on your site.
