Physical Properties of Comendite
Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Comendite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Comendite rock are vital in determining its Comendite Texture and Comendite Uses.
Hardness and Strength of Comendite
The physical properties of Comendite 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 Comendite is 6-7 whereas its compressive strength is 92.40 N/mm2. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Comendite is bluish black whereas its fracture is pervasive. Luster of Comendite is the interaction of light with the surface of Comendite. Luster of Comendite is dull. Comendite cleavage is not available. The specific gravity of Comendite is 2.38. Comendite is opaque in nature whereas its toughness is 2. You can also know all the list of rocks in Opaque Rocks, Translucent Rocks and Transparent Rocks.
