  1. Color: Lapis lazuli typically displays a deep blue color with varying intensities, often accompanied by golden or white flecks of pyrite or calcite.

  2. Hardness: Lapis lazuli has a Mohs hardness ranging from 5 to 5.5, making it relatively soft compared to many other gemstones. This means it is susceptible to scratching and should be handled with care to avoid damage.

  3. Clarity: Lapis lazuli is generally opaque, meaning it doesn't allow light to pass through it. However, it can sometimes have areas of translucency, particularly in thinner sections.

  4. Luster: Lapis lazuli has a vitreous to greasy luster, giving it a somewhat glossy appearance when polished.

  5. Density: The density of lapis lazuli varies depending on its composition, but it typically ranges from 2.7 to 2.9 grams per cubic centimeter.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Lapis lazuli is often associated with enhancing spiritual awareness and intuition. It is believed to stimulate the third eye chakra, promoting inner vision, wisdom, and enlightenment. It is thought to facilitate clear communication and self-expression, making it useful for public speakers, teachers, and writers.
