Cohesive Strength Of Basalt Rock

Basalt rock properties and uses sciencestruckhe rock hardness of basalt is 6 on the mohs scale, and can be seen through a combination of its compressive strength 100300 mpa megapascal, its tensile strength 1030 mpa, and its shear strength 2060 mpa, which denotes that depending on the mineral makeup, basalt rocks fall in the strong very strong category.
