Boulder Opal Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Blue Gemstones gemstones, Boulder Opal is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Boulder Opal include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Boulder Opal 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. Boulder Opal cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. and specific gravity of Boulder Opal is 1.98-2.25.

The physical properties of Boulder Opal, 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 Boulder Opal is represented by SiO 2 + H 2OUlrich Henn and Claudio C..
