Calculate the density of each of your mineral samples. How could you use the densities to identify the minerals?  
Ans: Density can be measured with the structure of the minerals. Different minerals will have different density.

Key Concept. Would density or color be more useful in identifying a particular mineral? Explain.
Ans: Density will be the same for the same minerals but color doesn't
