Impact toughness: The impact toughness of stone depends on the mineral composition and structure. Quartzite and siliceous sandstone are highly brittle, while gabbro and diabase, which contain a large amount of dark minerals, have relatively high toughness. The heat resistance of stone is related to its chemical and mineral composition. Stone containing gypsum begins to break at temperatures above 100 ℃; Stone containing magnesium carbonate will undergo damage when the temperature is above 725 ℃; Stone containing calcium carbonate begins to break when the temperature reaches 827 ℃.
