Physical Properties of Blue Granite
Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Blue Granite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Blue Granite rock are vital in determining its Blue Granite Texture and Blue Granite Uses.
Hardness and Strength of Blue Granite
The physical properties of Blue Granite 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 Blue Granite 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 Blue Granite is white whereas its fracture is not available. Luster of Blue Granite is the interaction of light with the surface of Blue Granite. Luster of Blue Granite is subvitreous to dull. Blue Granite cleavage is not available. The specific gravity of Blue Granite is 2.8-3. Blue Granite 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.
