Chrysotile Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Green Gemstones gemstones, Chrysotile is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Chrysotile include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Chrysotile 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. Chrysotile cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. and specific gravity of Chrysotile is 2.51-2.63.

The physical properties of Chrysotile, 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 Chrysotile is represented by Mg 3(Si 2O 5)(OH) 4Gemdat.org , Management Team (2012).
