Scolecite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Gems Found In Australia gemstones, Scolecite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Scolecite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Scolecite 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. Scolecite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Scolecite cleavage is Perfect on and ,and specific gravity of Scolecite is 2.20-2.23.

The physical properties of Scolecite, 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 Scolecite is represented by CaAl 2Si 3O 10 · 3H 2OUlrich Henn and Claudio C..
