I have two questions.
1. Describe what would happen if you rubbed a mineral with a Mohrs hardness value of 7 against a mineral with a value of 5?

2. Which mineral identification test would be easy for a person to perform at home. Which would be difficult.

Thanks

    The higher Mohrs value will scratch the lower Mohrs value material.
