Leather is used for the cue tip, and pool chalk is used to provide more friction against the cue ball. Pool chalk is an abrasive using materials found in sandpaper. It is not a form of chalk.

Friction. The movement of the rolling pool balls does no damage to the pool felt. However, the pool balls accumulate pool chalk that is very abrasive. The pool chalk accumulated on the balls and dropping on to the felt both result in tearing of the felt fibers as balls are struck or slide on the table. Occasionally balls bounce or are jumped on the table, resulting in even more damage. Damaged felt is a part of playing pool.
Chalk has many purposes. It can be used as a drying agent for gymnasts, rock climbers, and weightlifters. It is used in billiards (pool) on the tips of the pool cues. It can be made into sticks for writing on chalkboards. thats a really good answer dude -james27yocool
