Densities of Common Rock Types kimberlite: the blue rock, the source of natural Diamond

Hardness of Diamonds and minerals is defined by measuring on the scale of Mosh in comparison from 1 for Talc to 10 for diamond.

The Mohs hardness scale lists 10 common minerals, assigning to each a hardness from 1 to 10.
(Friederich Mohs, German mineralogist 1822).
