Molybdenite is a very soft metallic mineral.  It can be easily confused with graphite, but not with many other minerals.  Graphite has a darker black silver color and a black to gray, brown to gray streak, whereas Molybdenite has a bluish to silver color and streak.  It is soft enough to leave a mark on paper and fingers.  The greasy feel is due to extreme softness.  Molybdenite or “Moly Ore” as it is sometimes called, is a very high luster mineral and is an interesting mineral to add to your collection.
