Quartz Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Gems for Taurus gemstones, Quartz is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Quartz include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Quartz 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. Quartz cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Quartz cleavage is Indistinct,and specific gravity of Quartz is 2.65.

The physical properties of Quartz, 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 Quartz is represented by SiO2.
