Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Borolanite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Borolanite rock are vital in determining its Borolanite Texture and Borolanite Uses.
The physical properties of Borolanite 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 Borolanite is 5.5-6 whereas its compressive strength is 150.00 N/mm2. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Borolanite is white whereas its fracture is conchoidal to uneven. Luster of Borolanite is the interaction of light with the surface of Borolanite. Luster of Borolanite is greasy to dull. Borolanite cleavage is poor. The specific gravity of Borolanite is 2.6. Borolanite is translucent to 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.
