Lampblack consists almost entirely of amorphous carbon in an extremely fine state of division.

It is very largely used as a pigment, and in the manufacture of printing and Indian inks.

“Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: "Love your neighbor as yourself."”
