Colored pencils write poorly when compared to graphite pencils. Currently, graphite pencils are only available in grey. Someone should invent colored graphite pencils.

The problem is that graphite is black and you can only get a color by adding another subtance. Then it is no longer a graphite. Color is the problem Graphite only comes in one color.Your grey pencil is black graphite with an impurity mixed in.

A Chemist would need too take the black Graphite [Which you are exactly right about] and adjust it's atomic structure.
The problems are only inherent when you get white-grey-black spectrum.
After that; you have to add other elements which negates my idea entirely.
It is possible that we can achieve an altered color if the structure is disrupted.
Most likely a standard reaction would be yellow [Best goal would be better than one color but, not probable].
Thanks,
