Is the lead in a pencil actual lead?

I was justt wondering if it was the actual mineral or just a cheap by-product in the pencils I use.

they stopped using real lead in pencils a long time ago.

No, uneducated people teach other people to call it lead. All pencils use graphite today.

Nope, it's graphite.
The lead was removed due to health purposes.
