These 1/4 inch thick black streak plates are ideal for testing the hardness or softness of minerals, as well as determining the color of lighter-colored minerals. By scratching the mineral in question against the plates, students or teachers can determine these properties by observing the quantity and hue of the residue left behind. Excellent for use in the classroom, or at home for aspiring geologists.
