Apophyllite KF Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Green Gemstones gemstones, Apophyllite KF is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Apophyllite KF include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Apophyllite KF 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. Apophyllite KF cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Apophyllite KF cleavage is Perfect on , imperfect on ,and specific gravity of Apophyllite KF is 2.33-2.37.

The physical properties of Apophyllite KF, 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 Apophyllite KF is represented by (K,Na)Ca4Si8O20(F,OH)•8(H2O).
