  • Fracture should be sharp & clear.
  • For a good building stone co-efficient of hardness should not less than 14.
  •  It must have a wear less than 3%.
  •  It must have a specific gravity (SG) of greater than 2.7.
  •  It must have a compact, fine, crystalline structure, strong & durable.
  • The toughness index must not less than 13.
  • It must be acid resistant & free from any soluble matter.
