Looks like a nice water worn pebble to me, lots of chemical weathering on its surface.  Is there anyplace on it that shows a fresh surface? Is it a mineral or a rock fragment?  If its a rock fragment, a hardness test is not of much help.  Also, you will need a fresh surface to gain the hardness of the sample and not its weathered surface, assuming this is a mineral and not a rock fragment.
