Deeds should always be drafted by a professional who can determine what your needs are, explain the consequences of the transfer and draft a proper deed for your jurisdiction. Errors made by non-professionals can be costly to correct if they can be corrected.

It's best to search the deed records to determine the legal description of the mineral interest. You do that by going to the county of the mineral interest and search the index by the owner's name. Use that legal description to insert into a mineral deed, have it signed before a notary public, and record it in the deed records of the relevant county.

in addition:

"By conveying the mineral rights over by means of a mineral deed or quit claim deed and then file it with the county clerk or recorder in which the tract or tracts lay. A mineral deed or quit claim deed can be purchased for very little cost online or at a office supply store"

While you certainly can sell your mineral rights on your own, it is difficult to get the full value out of your oil and gas royalties or mineral rights without working with an experienced and well-connected mineral rights broker. By putting your rights up for auction with the help of The Mineral Auction, you have the benefit of selling your rights to our network of over 6,000 interested buyers who will compete for your rights, allowing you to hold out for the best price rather than making a decision based on a much smaller pool of offers.For more help visit uniroyalties.com

Diamond would be the best, corundum next best. #10 and #9 respectively on the Mohs mineral hardness scale.
