Don't know who won, but I'll take up the gauntlet to keep the thread alive.

Which of these is not a mineral used on the Mohs scale of hardness?

A. Orthoclase B. Apatite C. Graphite D. Gypsum

Cheers Seiveboy, your $1,000,000 cheque is in the mail! I just checked and Graphite ranks 1-2 in hardness but doesn't appear on the scale, which makes you correct. Gypsum is ranked 2 on the scale according to Wiki

Close enough. It was made public after the event.

Nobody attended funnily enough.
