Gemstone Moh’s Hardness Scale

Mohs Hardness Scale

The Moh’s hardness scale refers to scratch hardness. The resistance of one mineral to be scratched by another.

Friedrich Mohs (1773-1839), a Viennese mineralogist, introduced the term scratch hardness. The scale ranges from the softest at 1 through to the hardest at 10. Gemstones with a hardness of 1 and 2 are considered to be soft, from 3 to 5 medium, with 6 and over considered to be hard.

Cobb & Co Market

If you didn’t make it to the Cobb & Co Handmade Under the Stars artisan twilight markets, sadly, you missed out on a fantastic evening.

Fused Glass Fertility Bowl

I didn’t intend to make a ‘fertility bowl’. It just seemed to evolve. Anyway, read on and I hope you enjoy.

Grand Central Market Room Update

Well, our first weekend at Grand Central Market Room is over. How was it, you ask!

Actually, for the first weekend, it wasn’t a disaster. We didn’t make much more than a general market, but of course the costs were higher and Ann spent a lot of time there.

But it is early days and we are committed to seeing it out for a few more weeks. Nothing ventured and all that stuff.
