Question by L: How do you measure the hardness of a rock?
Is there a tool or method for measuring the absolute hardness of a rock? Most hardness testers are for measuring metals and won’t work on rocks (yes, I’ve tried).
Thank you for your answer. Moh’s scale is a relative hardness scale. I need an absolute hardness.

    This level is a fair price and has a nice build quality. Item has nice rubber ends to help with shock from a drop. One thing I hate is tools that feel light and cheap, but this feels like a decent quality plastic and it has some heft (but not too much, just enough to let you know it’s sturdy). The magnetic strip is fairly weak but for making sure it doesn’t slide around it serves its purpose. The middle most level vial is visible from the side of the level so it can be set vertically and looked at from above which is nice. Perhaps one of the nicest things about this level is the size, it’s perfect for putting in a toolbox and you can grab it any time you need. To date I have had positive results from this low budget level, and if you’re just doing some general projects I think it should do fine.

    Not my primary level, but this one is perfect and was a great price for the more portable tool box. Seems sturdy and accurate, with rubber in the right places when (not if) you drop it during use or transit. Price seemed good, too.

    Mohs hardness scale is the most common for field identification:
    1 Talc
    2-2.5 can be scratched with a fingernail
    3.5 can be scratched with a penny
    5 can be scratched with a pocket knife
    7 won’t leave a streak on a porcelain streak plate
    10 diamond

    If you need an absolute hardness, than a sclerometer must be used

  5. georock1959

    A rock is composed of one or minerals, and each mineral will have its own characteristic hardness which can be measured with the Mohs scale. Because a rock is usually composed of more than one mineral, the hardness will vary and therefore geologists generally do not measure the hardness of rocks.

    If you are looking for the strength of a rock for engineering or structural purposes, then you need to consider Rockwell scale or other tests prescribed by ASTM, but they become subjective when considering the inhomogenous nature of most rocks.
