Fuchsite is a green variety of muscovite mica that often contains chromium, giving it its distinctive color.

  1. Color: Fuchsite typically exhibits a vibrant green color due to the presence of chromium in its composition.

  2. Hardness: It has a Mohs hardness of around 2 to 3, which makes it relatively soft compared to many other gemstones. This softness makes it prone to scratching and wear.

  3. Clarity: Fuchsite can range from transparent to translucent. It often forms in layers or clusters, which may affect its clarity.

  4. Luster: It has a vitreous to pearly luster, depending on its surface and how it's polished.

  5. Density: The density of fuchsite varies depending on its composition and any impurities present, but it generally has a density between 2.77 and 3.15 g/cm³.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Fuchsite is believed to have a strong connection with nature, helping individuals attune to the energies of the natural world and fostering a deeper appreciation for the environment. It is said to assist in resolving issues related to self-worth, self-love, and the healing of emotional wounds. It's often used in crystal healing rituals aimed at emotional healing and releasing trauma.
