2020-7-14  Typically, in thin section, the graphite flakes are dominated by some very few, up to ca. 3.5 mm large grains, which make up the bulk of the modal content of graphite. The mode grain size is usually much smaller, often around 300 μm. However, the in situ grain size of the rocks is of less significance.

Graphite has multiple layers of parallel planar C 6 rings, resulting in a polymorphic crystal structure of hexagonal close packing (HCP) or rhombohedral, in which the in-plane C-C bond length is 0.14 nm. Comparatively, the size of benzene ring (or crystallographic vector a’s length in the HCP unit cell) is 0.25 nm, and the interplanar distance (or crystallographic c/2) is 0 ...
