Amblygonite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Green Gemstones gemstones, Amblygonite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Amblygonite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Amblygonite 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. Amblygonite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Amblygonite cleavage is [100] Perfect, [110] Good, [011] Distinct,and specific gravity of Amblygonite is 2.98-3.10.

The physical properties of Amblygonite, 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 Amblygonite is represented by (Li,Na)Al(PO 4)(F,OH)Michael O’Donoghue , Gems, Sixth edition (2006) More from other references.
