Refractive index of a solid is observed to have the same value along all directions. Comment on the nature of this solid. Would it show cleavage property?

Amorphous solids are isotropic in nature. Because of
this amorphous solids have same value of refractive index
along all directions.
Amorphous solids do not show cleavage property, i.e. when
cut into two pieces with a sharp knife, they give pieces
with irregular surface.
