  1. Color: Typically reddish-orange to brownish-red. It can also exhibit shades of pink, red, and brown.

  2. Hardness: Native copper has a relatively low hardness, ranging between 2.5 to 3 on the Mohs scale. This means it's relatively soft compared to many other minerals.

  3. Clarity: Native copper is opaque, meaning it does not transmit light. Its metallic nature and solid structure make it impossible to see through.

  4. Luster: It displays a metallic luster, often described as shiny or reflective. This luster is a result of its high metallic content.

  5. Density: The density of native copper ranges around 8.9 to 9.0 grams per cubic centimeter, which is relatively high compared to other non-metallic minerals.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Some believe that native copper has the ability to amplify energy, particularly in the realms of healing and spiritual practices. It is said to help align physical and etheric bodies, promoting balance and harmony within oneself.
