Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Wehrlite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Wehrlite rock are vital in determining its Wehrlite Texture and Wehrlite Uses.
The physical properties of Wehrlite 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 Wehrlite is 5.5-6 whereas its compressive strength is Not Available. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Wehrlite is white whereas its fracture is irregular. Luster of Wehrlite is the interaction of light with the surface of Wehrlite. Luster of Wehrlite is metallic. Wehrlite cleavage is perfect. The specific gravity of Wehrlite is 8.4. Wehrlite is opaque in nature whereas its toughness is 2.1. You can also know all the list of rocks in Opaque Rocks, Translucent Rocks and Transparent Rocks.
