Malachite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Gems for Scorpio gemstones, Malachite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Malachite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Malachite 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. Malachite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Malachite cleavage is Perfect on fair on ,and specific gravity of Malachite is 3.25-4.10.

The physical properties of Malachite, 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 Malachite is represented by Cu2CO3(OH)2.
