Physical Properties of Oolite

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

Hardness and Strength of Oolite

The physical properties of Oolite 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 Oolite is 3-4 whereas its compressive strength is Not Available. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Oolite is white whereas its fracture is conchoidal. Luster of Oolite is the interaction of light with the surface of Oolite. Luster of Oolite is pearly to shiny. Oolite cleavage is non-existent. The specific gravity of Oolite is Not Available. Oolite is opaque in nature whereas its toughness is 1.
