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.
