Physical Properties of Banded iron formation

Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Banded iron formation like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Banded iron formation rock are vital in determining its Banded iron formation Texture and Banded iron formation Uses.

Hardness and Strength of Banded iron formation

The physical properties of Banded iron formation 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 Banded iron formation is 5.5-6 whereas its compressive strength is Not Available. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Banded iron formation is white whereas its fracture is uneven, splintery or conchoidal. Luster of Banded iron formation is the interaction of light with the surface of Banded iron formation. Luster of Banded iron formation is earthy. Banded iron formation cleavage is imperfect. The specific gravity of Banded iron formation is 5.0-5.3. Banded iron formation is translucent to opaque in nature whereas its toughness is 1.5. You can also know all the list of rocks in Opaque Rocks, Translucent Rocks and Transparent Rocks.
