Color transparency biased impurity spread through Quartz colorless, and pink sometimes. A sucker stuck in a mountain. Luster what to give back from a source. Five bucks and change From pearl to vitreous, variances in a shell. Streak how to respond. A snail leaves slow mucous. Hematite sheds red-brown, the girl at the fountain tosses hope, walks away. Hardness make ourselves resist abrasion. Buff the Buick, boy. And again. A fingernail is more so than gypsum. Tenacity reaction to being hugged too tight. Standing straight against a heavy wind. Superman presses coal into diamond. Diamonds exit a powder. There are no u-turns here. Cleavage some fold and fall away, perforations on paper show you where to break. Dolomite down the middle, or otherwise. Parting divorce less determination. An sudden split hoof makes a head rear back in pain. Antimony. Fracture The ground, lattice of faults. A small tear in the flesh border. Obsidian and inevitable facets. Specific Gravity Against water, what is the weight? The heavy of a spoon, a rock, a truth. Minus your tare.
