Rock investigation

We've been learning all about different rock types and minerals. Today we used Moh's 'Scale of Hardness' to determine the relative hardness of different minerals. We found out that our fingernails are 2.5, while a diamond is 10 on the scale! Following this we tested the hardness and porosity of lots of different rocks.
