Physical Properties of Jaspillite
Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Jaspillite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Jaspillite rock are vital in determining its Jaspillite Texture and Jaspillite Uses.
Hardness and Strength of Jaspillite
The physical properties of Jaspillite 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 Jaspillite is 3 whereas its compressive strength is 230.00 N/mm2. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Jaspillite is white whereas its fracture is conchoidal. Luster of Jaspillite is the interaction of light with the surface of Jaspillite. Luster of Jaspillite is earthy. Jaspillite cleavage is imperfect. The specific gravity of Jaspillite is 5.0-5.3. Jaspillite 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.
