Spodumene Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Green Gemstones gemstones, Spodumene is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Spodumene include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Spodumene 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. Spodumene cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Spodumene cleavage is Perfect prismatic, two directions ∧ at 87°,and specific gravity of Spodumene is 3.15-3.21.

The physical properties of Spodumene, 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 Spodumene is represented by LiAlSi2O6.
