  • Fracture Origin

    Fracture refers to the sheetlike space in volcanic rocks. In terms of their origins, fractures are divided into five types: (1) contraction fractures, which are primary fractures formed by irregular contraction of magma due to an uneven decrease in internal temperature during volcanic action; (2) blast fractures, primary fractures .
