Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Theralite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Theralite rock are vital in determining its Theralite Texture and Theralite Uses.
The physical properties of Theralite 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 Theralite is 7 whereas its compressive strength is Not Available. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Theralite is white whereas its fracture is uneven, splintery or conchoidal. Luster of Theralite is the interaction of light with the surface of Theralite. Luster of Theralite is waxy and dull. Theralite cleavage is non-existent. The specific gravity of Theralite is 2.5-2.8. Theralite is translucent to opaque in nature whereas its toughness is 1.5. You can also know all the list of rocks in Opaque Rocks, Translucent Rocks and Transparent Rocks.
