how to conduct a hardness test on an unknown rock or mineral using mohs in other words, it is slightly harder than gypsum (h=2) but softer than calcite (h=3).
gypsum is readily identified by its softness (a fingernail scratches it). gypsum comes as clear crystals that display one perfect cleavage (selenite), as blocks of
a mineral or other material with a higher hardness number can scratch anything with an equal or lower number. thus, a copper penny can scratch calcite, gypsum
