Microcline Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Blue Gemstones gemstones, Microcline is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Microcline include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Microcline 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. Microcline cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Microcline cleavage is Perfect, Good,and specific gravity of Microcline is 2.55-2.63.

The physical properties of Microcline, 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 Microcline is represented by KAlSi 3O 8Arthur Thomas , Gemstones (2009).
