Anglesite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Green Gemstones gemstones, Anglesite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Anglesite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Anglesite 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. Anglesite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Anglesite cleavage is [001] good, [210] distinct,and specific gravity of Anglesite is 6.30-6.39.

The physical properties of Anglesite, 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.
