The density of a mineral is arrived at by dividing the weight and the volume of the mineral. This mainly measures the compactness of a substance.

Each mineral has a characteristic density (or range of densities), so if the measured density is a close match to a mineral you know, it MAY be that mineral; if it doesn't match, it is something different.

The mineral's density is 5 g/cm3

The density of the mineral is 5.0243902439...g/cm cubed.

Hardness refers to a mineral's resistance. Density is the measure of how much matter there is.
