Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Lamprophyre like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Lamprophyre rock are vital in determining its Lamprophyre Texture and Lamprophyre Uses.
The physical properties of Lamprophyre 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 Lamprophyre is 5-6 whereas its compressive strength is Not Available. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Lamprophyre is white whereas its fracture is conchoidal. Luster of Lamprophyre is the interaction of light with the surface of Lamprophyre. Luster of Lamprophyre is subvitreous to dull. Lamprophyre cleavage is conchoidal. The specific gravity of Lamprophyre is 2.86-2.87. Lamprophyre 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.
