Re: How to measure density of ARK stones

John in NM
You need a hanging balance scale to measure SG easily. I have a tiny one with carat weights, you need something much bigger for an ark stone. You hang the stone from one side in a vessel of water and then add calibrated weights to the other. This gives you the weight of the water displaced of course.
