Actinolite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Green Gemstones gemstones, Actinolite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Actinolite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Actinolite Optical Properties are responsible for imparting various physical properties to its structure. Knowledge of these properties is equally important to gem-cutters as well as to consumers. Actinolite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Actinolite cleavage is perfect along .,and specific gravity of Actinolite is 3.00.

The physical properties of Actinolite, in fact, are imparted by the chemical composition of its individual molecule. The reactivity or inertness of the crystal is solely governed by its chemical structure. Chemical composition of Actinolite is represented by Ca 2(Mg,Fe) 5Si 8O 22(OH) 2Ulrich Henn and Claudio C..
