Jadeite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Red Gemstones gemstones, Jadeite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Jadeite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Jadeite 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. Jadeite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Jadeite cleavage is Good on [110],and specific gravity of Jadeite is 3.28-3.38.

The physical properties of Jadeite, 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 Jadeite is represented by NaAlSi 2O 6Ulrich Henn and Claudio C..
