Work Step by Step
1) Isotropic” is independent of direction, while “anisotropic” materials are highly dependent on it. 2) Anisotropic minerals can be penetrated by light due to their inconsistent properties in all directions. The opposite is true for isotropic minerals; light cannot penetrate the mineral because the mineral’s properties block the light in any direction. 3) Chemical bonding is another point of difference. Anisotropic minerals have different and inconsistent chemical bonding. Isotropic minerals, on the other hand, exhibit consistent and uniform chemical bonding within the mineral.
