Graphite was first used following a huge graphite discovery in England in 1564. This graphite was found to be a perfect way to write things on paper or something similar. Graphite leaves a darker mark than lead does but it also soft. The original graphite writing tools were actually sticks of graphite that were wrapped with string. Later, graphite was inserted into hollowed out pieces of wood, which was essentially the first wood pencil created!
