Is the Difference Now Permanent?
From the Slope of Hope: I will start off with a chart that, in a sea of tens of thousands of charts, stood out as shocking: What the chart represents is the percentage drop from whatever the record high was. In other words, it shows the percentage loss a person would have had if they had bought at the highest point in the history of the market.

Hardness, color and clarity scales
The Mohs scale measures the hardness or durability of minerals and natural gemstones. Hardness refers to the gemstone’s ability to resist abrasion. In other words, it describes the stone’s capacity to resist scratches from other minerals. If you were to take a diamond (has the highest score) and try to scratch its surface with a ruby (the next highest score), you would be unsuccessful. However, if you were to take the diamond and scratch the surface of a ruby, it would cause a scratch in the ruby stone.
