How about a pinned "Before you Post" topic for "What is it" Questions


Recommended Posts

Most forums have a pinned topic called "Before You Post" that lets poster know what basic information to include when making a post. It seems like a good idea here. Ask posters to tell us what ~ hardness is the sample in question, does it scratch a shiny, pre 1980s penny or a shiny nickel; does it fizz when you place warm vinegar on it or does it only fizz with warm vinegar if in a powder; what color is the streak; does it stick to a magnet; how "heavy" does it feel compared to a piece of quartz etc. This would help provide more info when trying to ID a sample in question and help new mineral enthusiast learn to how to ID samples for themselves. What do you'll think?
