  1. Color: As the name suggests, peach satin spar usually exhibits a peachy or light orange hue. This coloration comes from impurities within the gypsum, such as iron oxides.

  2. Hardness: Gypsum, including satin spar varieties, has a relatively low hardness of about 2 on the Mohs scale. This means it can be easily scratched by harder materials.

  3. Clarity: Satin spar gypsum often appears translucent to opaque due to its fibrous nature. It may have a silky sheen, which contributes to its name.

  4. Luster: The luster of peach satin spar is typically described as silky or satin-like, owing to its fibrous structure.

  5. Density: Gypsum has a relatively low density compared to many other minerals. Its density can vary depending on factors such as impurities and crystal structure.

  6. Metaphysical properties: It is believed to promote a sense of peace and relaxation, making it suitable for meditation or calming environments. It may be used for emotional healing, helping individuals release negative emotions and promoting emotional balance.
