Mohs Hardness Scale Gemstone Moh’s 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.
