  2. Hardness: Sunstone has a hardness of around 6 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale, making it moderately hard. This means it's durable enough for most jewelry applications but can still be scratched by harder materials.

  3. Clarity: Sunstone can exhibit transparency to translucent properties. Inclusions and other impurities may affect its clarity, but it generally has good clarity.

  4. Luster: Sunstone has a vitreous (glass-like) to sub-adamantine (almost diamond-like) luster, giving it a brilliant shine.

  5. Density: The density of sunstone varies depending on its composition and any inclusions present, but it generally falls within a range of 2.55 to 2.75 g/cm³.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Sunstone is believed to be a stone of leadership, personal power, and freedom. It's thought to instill joy, vitality, and enthusiasm. It's often seen as a symbol of optimism and good fortune, helping to dispel fears and uncertainties.
