Ekanite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Green Gemstones gemstones, Ekanite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Ekanite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Ekanite 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. Ekanite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Ekanite cleavage is Distinct,and specific gravity of Ekanite is 3.28-3.32.

The physical properties of Ekanite, 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.
