Agate and Garnet Chemical Formula

While comparing Agate and Garnet physical properties, the important data you should know is its chemical composition. Since chemical formula defines the molecular structure of the crystal, most of the physical properties like color, tenacity, solubility are governed by Agate and Garnet chemical formula.

  • Chemical formula of Agate- SiO2
  • Chemical formula of Garnet- Garnet is a series of several different minerals with unique chemical formulas.

Agate and Garnet Specific Gravity

Another important criteria for qualitative analysis of gemstones is Agate and Garnet Specific gravity. Specific gravity is the relative density of a gemstone compared with respect to density of water. Gemologists use Agate and Garnet Optical Properties during the identification of gemstone. Specific gravity of Agate is 3.55-4.33 whereas that of Garnet is 3.55-4.33.
