Lepidolite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Gems for Libra gemstones, Lepidolite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Lepidolite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Lepidolite 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. Lepidolite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Lepidolite cleavage is perfect,and specific gravity of Lepidolite is 2.80-2.90.

The physical properties of Lepidolite, 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 Lepidolite is represented by Mg 3Si 4O 10(OH) 2Ulrich Henn and Claudio C..
