Sunstone and Agate Chemical Formula

While comparing Sunstone and Agate physical properties, the important data you should know is its chemical composition. Since chemical formula defines the molecular structure of the crystal, most of the physical properties like color, tenacity, solubility are governed by Sunstone and Agate chemical formula.

  • Chemical formula of Sunstone- Microcline: KAlSi3O8 Oligoclase: (Na,Ca)Al1-2Si3-2O8
  • Chemical formula of Agate- SiO2

Sunstone and Agate Specific Gravity

Another important criteria for qualitative analysis of gemstones is Sunstone and Agate Specific gravity. Specific gravity is the relative density of a gemstone compared with respect to density of water. Gemologists use Sunstone and Agate Optical Properties during the identification of gemstone. Specific gravity of Sunstone is 2.60-2.64 whereas that of Agate is 2.60-2.64.
