Adamite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Blue Gemstones gemstones, Adamite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Adamite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Adamite 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. Adamite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Adamite cleavage is , good; , poor,and specific gravity of Adamite is 4.32-4.48.

The physical properties of Adamite, 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 Adamite is represented by Zn 2(AsO 4)(OH)Michael O’Donoghue , Gems, Sixth edition (2006).
