Physical Properties of Jasperoid
Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Jasperoid like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Jasperoid rock are vital in determining its Jasperoid Texture and Jasperoid Uses.
Hardness and Strength of Jasperoid
The physical properties of Jasperoid 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 Jasperoid is 3.5-4 whereas its compressive strength is 140.00 N/mm2. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Jasperoid is white whereas its fracture is conchoidal. Luster of Jasperoid is the interaction of light with the surface of Jasperoid. Luster of Jasperoid is vitreous and pearly. Jasperoid cleavage is perfect. The specific gravity of Jasperoid is 2.8-3. Jasperoid is transparent to translucent in nature whereas its toughness is 1.
