GRAPHITE is black colour and it is soft and sharp. It is one of carbon. So pencil writes black.

Of couse graphite is used in making pencil leads but you know that graphite is a soft non metal and gets powdered easily in hand. So in order to make it hard its mixed with a substance. I don't exactly know the substance's name. If any one knows it please post it here as graphite is lustrous so to be used!
