Mineral Search is an interactive, search oriented database of 670 minerals on CD-ROM, designed for Windows 95 or later. The database includes 20 properties for each mineral and photographs for most. The software also includes a Cataloging tool for your mineral collection. Choose to work with All 670 Minerals in the database, or just the 300 most Common Minerals, or just the 100 Gem Minerals.
The Property Search is highly customized to result in the most effective mineral identification search possible. Search for any combination of Specific Gravity, Hardness, Refractive Index, Color, Streak, Luster, Crystal System, Chemical Formula, Mineral Group, Locale, and more.
The flexible database allows you to add more data to each mineral, save it, and search through it later. Record additional mineral locales, for example, or for the gemologist, add more optical data on a gem mineral.

  • Mineral Hardness Scale Ruler

    The Mineral Hardness Ruler is a stimulating visual aid, educates in one phase of mineralogy, and provides the standard ruler measurement scales needed in classes.


    Rockhounds, mineral enthusiasts, students, teachers, geologists, and any one interested in rocks and minerals will find the Mineral Hardness Ruler a handy visual aid for quick information on mineral hardness.



    The two-sided, flexible, glossy, vinyl ruler consists of five scales: three measurement scales and two mineral hardness scales. The measurement scales are in standard ruler measurements of tenths of inches, sixteenths of inches, and millimeters. Mohs' relative hardness numbers are integrated into the inch scales, while a separate scale exists for an absolute mineral hardness scale by Rosiwal.


    On one side of the ruler are pictures of the ten common minerals, in full color, selected by Mohs for his relative hardness scale. On the reverse side of the ruler are six common items with their relative hardnesses. These items, along with known minerals, can be used as a handy field kit to test the relative hardness of an unknown mineral.


    Hardness is one property of a mineral that can be used to distinguish among similar minerals. A given mineral can scratch any other mineral of the same or softer hardness. Over a hundred years ago, the German mineralogist Frederick Mohs devised the relative hardness scale that has found favor with mineralogists for over a century. Others, such as Rosiwal, formed absolute hardness scales using the same minerals as Mohs. For example, diamond, the hardest substance in Nature is not twice as hard as apatite, 10 versus 5, but over twenty thousand times as hard, 140,000 versus 6.5.
