English translation:The extent to which diaclasis occurs in these rocks varies. OR
Explanation:
The extent to which diaclasite forms in these rock varies.

I'm not an expert, but according to the OED, diaclasis = a fracture; refraction of light rays; hence diaclastic = relating to diaclasis
Diaclasite = A bisilicate of iron and magnesium; a brassy yellow or greenish grey mineral of the pyroxene group, which is orthorhombic in crystallization.
