    Then the non-pure graphite did the trick for me, though I am not talking here about a complex alchemical process, but simply heating the powder I had.
    The good news for me is that the non-pure graphite is easily available for me... the bad news is that if pure powdered graphite is not meant to react in that way, then I have no idea of what they sold me... thus it would be quite hard to replicate the results unless someone gets the same "impure graphite" that I got.
