Graphite is anisotropic with respect to conduction of electric current. Explain

The graphite is a hexagonal crystal, that is carbon atoms in it are arranged in layers parallel to the plane. The distance between adjacent layers is appreciable. Carbon atoms are arranged in different layers and each atom is covalently bonded to three of its neighboring atom in the same layer. Hence the transfer of electrons is possible. Hence graphite is anisotropic with respect to the conduction of electric current.
