Physical Properties of Litchfieldite

Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Litchfieldite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Litchfieldite rock are vital in determining its Litchfieldite Texture and Litchfieldite Uses.

Hardness and Strength of Litchfieldite

The physical properties of Litchfieldite 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 Litchfieldite is 5.5-6 whereas its compressive strength is 150.00 N/mm2. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Litchfieldite is white whereas its fracture is conchoidal to uneven. Luster of Litchfieldite is the interaction of light with the surface of Litchfieldite. Luster of Litchfieldite is greasy to dull. Litchfieldite cleavage is poor. The specific gravity of Litchfieldite is 2.6. Litchfieldite 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.
