Chrysocolla Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Gems for Taurus gemstones, Chrysocolla is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Chrysocolla include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Chrysocolla 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. Chrysocolla cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Chrysocolla cleavage is none,and specific gravity of Chrysocolla is 2.00-2.45.

The physical properties of Chrysocolla, 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 Chrysocolla is represented by Cu2H2Si2O5(OH)4.
