on Mohs' scale what is the hardness of neutronium in its native environment? we record the mass of a teaspoon full, so compared to the ratio of EM to gravity, what is the next level to fermi gas of degenerate matter? just how hard is it? an order of magnitude estimate will be fine. seems if a mountain on a 15km pulsar would be a millimeter and if it shifted on a magnetar it would blast (gee it doesnt have symbol font) [tex]\gamma[/tex] rays across the galaxy, it must be...unusual.
