Brucite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Blue Gemstones gemstones, Brucite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Brucite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Brucite 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. Brucite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Brucite cleavage is Perfect on ,and specific gravity of Brucite is 2.39.

The physical properties of Brucite, 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 Brucite is represented by Mg(OH) 2Michael O’Donoghue , Gems, Sixth Edition (2006).
