Re: Help to identify - Again

Hi Ryan

Your "mystery mineral" could be any of several things. We would need to know more about it to make a reasonable guess - chief among them being it's hardness. Can you scratch an obscure spot on it with the point of a pocket knife? - Also, what happens if you press a hot pin against it? Do you smell burning plastic?

The answer to those two questions might tell us enough help you out.

Regards

Alan
