Physical Properties of Granulite
Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Granulite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Granulite rock are vital in determining its Granulite Texture and Granulite Uses.
Hardness and Strength of Granulite
The physical properties of Granulite depend on its formation. Physical properties of rocks play an important role in determining its applications in various fields. Rocks are rated on the on the Moh's Hardness Scale which rates the rocks on the scale from 1 to 10. Rocks with hardness 1-3 are soft rocks from 3-6 are medium hardness rocks and 6-10 are hard rocks. The hardness of Granulite is 6-7 whereas its compressive strength is 175.00 N/mm2. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Granulite is white whereas its fracture is not available. Luster of Granulite is the interaction of light with the surface of Granulite. Luster of Granulite is vitreous. Granulite cleavage is imperfect. The specific gravity of Granulite is 2.8-3.0. Granulite is opaque in nature whereas its toughness is not available. You can also know all the list of rocks in Opaque Rocks, Translucent Rocks and Transparent Rocks.
