  1. Definitely not soapy soft. I read a little about hardness testing and tried a few things to test it. With the materials I have, a penny and a utility knife, I was not able to scratch it at all. So from my limited knowledge the hardness is definitely above an H6 on the Mohs Scale. Is that conclusion correct? What does it tell us?
  2. Steve, This rock was found around Greensboro, NC. It has become kind of a family argument about its exact origins but I distinctly remember digging it up. I must admit that I was disappointed to hear Bobby say it looks like glass to him too. Kris
  3. Hello everyone, I'm new here and know exactly nothing about rocks and minerals. I found this rock so long ago I can barely remember finding it. I have no idea what it is or where to begin. Here goes, the only thing I know about it is that it weights about 22lbs and looks like a large chunk of glass. Thanks, Kris
