Hagoromo Chalk — "Made from the tears of angels"

From Vimeo:

Once upon a time, not long ago, the math world fell in love... with a chalk. But not just any chalk! This was Hagoromo: a Japanese brand so smooth, so perfect, that some wondered if it was made from the tears of angels. Pencils down, please, as we tell the tale of a writing implement so irreplaceable, professors stockpiled it.

Ill health forced the owner to sell up.

He had 3 machines. He sold one locally and two to a South Korean company. If you buy the chalk on Amazon, it'll be the Korean version, not the original Japanese.
