Uvite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Red Gemstones gemstones, Uvite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Uvite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Uvite 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. Uvite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Uvite cleavage is Indistinct,and specific gravity of Uvite is 2.97-3.14.

The physical properties of Uvite, 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 Uvite is represented by Ca(Mg 3)MgAl 5(Si 6O 18)(BO 3) 3(OH) 3(OH)Gemdat.org , Management Team (2012).
