Anatase Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Blue Gemstones gemstones, Anatase is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Anatase include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Anatase 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. Anatase cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Anatase cleavage is Perfect on [001] and [011],and specific gravity of Anatase is 3.82-3.97.

The physical properties of Anatase, 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.
