Graphite is a naturally occurring form of crystalline carbon also called plumbago. It consists of carbon and is a native element found in igneous and metamorphic rocks and is a mineral of extremes being soft and pliable yet very stable within ordinary atmospheric conditions. In its natural form graphite has a layered structure with rings of six carbon atoms arranged in widely spaced horizontal sheets. Synthetic graphite is man-made created through a production process.

Ceylon Graphite (CYL) deposits in Sri Lanka are the highest-grade in situ underground vein graphite on the planet, with more than 90% Cg. Therefore, CYL has exceptionally low operating costs mining Vein Graphite.
11th June 2023
Ceylon Graphite produced Graphene is extremely thin 2-4 layers and extremely conductive; Graphene is one-atom thick in its monolayer form or approximately 0.32 nanometers in the Z axis. This means that it is all surface; there is no third dimension to it, thus its definition as a two-dimensional (2D) material.
