Re: Orange Mineral ???

Hi Todd,

If you click on "Bob's Rock Shop", above, and then scroll down to "The Mineral Key" you may be able to answer your question. If sandpaper does not scratch the mineral, the type of paper may give you a clue. The softest of which I am aware is made from quartz, thus your mineral must be Mhos 7 or harder. At a guess, I would check out topaz.
