Graphite from Crestmore, Riverside County, California
The common mineral graphite is seldom used in mineral collections because good specimens are hard to find. Many well-formed crystals can be found in the Crestmore quarries in California. Collectors have noticed spiral growth patterns and the occurrence of twin laws.
