In this episode, I talk about mineral hardness and how you can use common materials around your home to create your own mineral hardness kit. I explain how the Mohs Scale of Hardness works and how you use it to work out the hardness of an unknown mineral. This is a great skill to have when you start off learning about mineral properties.
You can learn more about Mohs Scale of Hardness right here.

And finally – if you are new to mineral collecting, or have a child who would like to learn more, check out the book I wrote…
