Physical Properties of Metapelite
Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Metapelite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Metapelite rock are vital in determining its Metapelite Texture and Metapelite Uses.
Hardness and Strength of Metapelite
The physical properties of Metapelite 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 Metapelite 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 Metapelite is unknown whereas its fracture is fibrous. Luster of Metapelite is the interaction of light with the surface of Metapelite. Luster of Metapelite is earthy. Metapelite cleavage is not available. The specific gravity of Metapelite is 3.4-3.7. Metapelite is 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.
