Schist Properties

Schist properties are essential when it comes to identification of rocks. The study of properties of Schist rock is done by Mineralogists to determine the identity of rock. Some of the properties of Schist include: Hardness, Color, Fracture, Luster, Compressive Strength etc. Schist is Medium to Fine Coarse Grained. As compared to other rocks, Schist is more porous and its density is 2.8-2.9 g/cm3. Get to know more about physical properties of Schist and thermal properties of Schist.
