Amazonite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Gems for Virgo gemstones, Amazonite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Amazonite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Amazonite 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. Amazonite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Amazonite cleavage is 2,1 basal ; 2,1 prismatic ; 3,1 pinacoidal,and specific gravity of Amazonite is 2.55-2.57.

The physical properties of Amazonite, 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 Amazonite is represented by KAlSi3O8.
