Molybdenite is a mineral of molybdenum disulfide, MoS2. Similar in appearance and feel to graphite, molybdenite has a lubricating effect which is produced by its structure of close-spaced parallel cleavage planes. Finely powdered MoS2, with particle sizes in the 1-100 µm range, is a common technical dry lubricant. It is also often mixed into various oils or greases, which allows mechanisms so lubricated to run less noisy and to keep running for a while longer even if most of the oil should...
