Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Cataclasite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Cataclasite rock are vital in determining its Cataclasite Texture and Cataclasite Uses.
The physical properties of Cataclasite 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 Cataclasite 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 Cataclasite is black whereas its fracture is na. Luster of Cataclasite is the interaction of light with the surface of Cataclasite. Luster of Cataclasite is vitreous. Cataclasite cleavage is not available. The specific gravity of Cataclasite is 2.1. Cataclasite 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.
