Caption: Fracture describes the way a mineral breaks when it does not display cleavage, the tendency to split along specific planes. Fracture is described with terms such as hackly, even, uneven, fibrous, splintery, etc. Even fracture describes a smooth broken surface that is not perfectly flat. Kaolin, a clay mineral that forms dense aggregates of extremely tiny particles, displays this property quite well.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
