Thulite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Red Gemstones gemstones, Thulite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Thulite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Thulite 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. Thulite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Thulite cleavage is Perfect imperfect ,and specific gravity of Thulite is 3.1.

The physical properties of Thulite, 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 Thulite is represented by Ca2Al3(SiO4)3(OH).
