Copressive Strength Of Basalt Stone

The rock hardness of basalt is 6 on the Mohs scale, and can be seen through a combination of its compressive strength 100-300 Mpa Megapascal, its tensile strength 10-30 Mpa, and its shear strength 20-60 Mpa, which denotes that depending on the mineral makeup, basalt rocks fall in the strong very strong category.
