Peridotite Properties

Peridotite properties are essential when it comes to identification of rocks. The study of properties of Peridotite rock is done by Mineralogists to determine the identity of rock. Some of the properties of Peridotite include: Hardness, Color, Fracture, Luster, Compressive Strength etc. Peridotite is Coarse Grained. As compared to other rocks, Peridotite is more porous and its density is 3.1-3.4 g/cm3. Get to know more about physical properties of Peridotite and thermal properties of Peridotite.
