What is the difference between fracture and cleavage in a mineral?

Cleavage is the breaking of a mineral along flat surfaces. Fracture, on the hand is just the chipping or "fracture" of a mineral.Cleavage is the tendency to break along flat surfaces, and fracture is the tendency of a mineral to break into irregular pieces.

How does the cleAvage of graphite differ from that of mica?

Cleavage refers to the tendency of a mineral to break along flat surfaces. Graphite and mica have the same type of cleavage, which is a perfect basal cleavage.

Which property of a mineral is illustrated by the peeling of biotite into thin flat sheets?

How are cleavage and fracture similar?

Cleavage is the tendency of a mineral to break along flat planar surfaces as determined by the structure of its crystal lattice. Fracture is the way a mineral breaks other than along a cleavage plane. They both describe a way a mineral can break.


Explain why a mineral such as topaz can display both cleavage and fracture?

Cleavage is when a mineral breaks into flat pieces. Fracture is when a mineral breaks into irregular pieces. Topaz atom bonds are weaker in some parts and stronger in others. When it is equally strong then it breaks into irregular pieces and if it all weak in a flat line then it will be flat.
