Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Adakite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Adakite rock are vital in determining its Adakite Texture and Adakite Uses.
The physical properties of Adakite 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 Adakite is 3-4 whereas its compressive strength is Not Available. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Adakite is bluish black whereas its fracture is conchoidal. Luster of Adakite is the interaction of light with the surface of Adakite. Luster of Adakite is grainy, pearly and vitreous. Adakite cleavage is not available. The specific gravity of Adakite is Not Available. Adakite 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.
