Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Epidosite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Epidosite rock are vital in determining its Epidosite Texture and Epidosite Uses.
The physical properties of Epidosite 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 Epidosite is 6 whereas its compressive strength is Not Available. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Epidosite is white to grey whereas its fracture is conchoidal. Luster of Epidosite is the interaction of light with the surface of Epidosite. Luster of Epidosite is not available. Epidosite cleavage is not available. The specific gravity of Epidosite is 2.8-3. Epidosite is opaque in nature whereas its toughness is 2.3. You can also know all the list of rocks in Opaque Rocks, Translucent Rocks and Transparent Rocks.
