CRYSTALS & THEIR HEALING PROPERTIES
Bronzite is the commercial name for an aggregate of the magnesium and iron bearing minerals of Enstatite and Hypersthene. It has a green-brown to brown colour with a bronze-like sub-metallic lustre. As the magnesium rich enstatite and the hypersthene which had 50% iron in its composition "weather" and over time the mineral that remains rather than being called enstatite-hyersthene has been given the name Bronzite.

Spiritually this is the perfect stone if you have difficulty stilling yourself, since it brings total serenity. Bronzite is effective against curses, is a magical protector and turns back negative thoughts and ill-wishing. However it returns, the ill-wishing, cures or spells back to the source considerably magnified and perpetuating the problem as it bounces backward and forward, becoming stronger each time and it makes the ill wisher feel extremely ill while the recipient remains protected but aware of the energetic disturbance. It is more effective to use bronzite in combination with black tourmaline, as this absorbs the ill wishing, immediately stopping the interaction and taking attention away from the source.
