Bronzite is a mineral that is from the Pyroxene group and was first reported back in 1906 by W. Wahl. Its an intermediate mineral between Augite and Enstatite, and both share very similar chemical composition. Bronzite is most notably found in a deep bronze color and is one of the more beautiful stones when tumbled. Sometimes this stone can be found with tiny Pyrite speckles dotted throughout and can resemble a cat’s eye. This mineral can be found world wide but is most notably known for its deposits in Brazil, Czech Republic, Madagascar, Austria, and USA.
Bronzite is known as the “stone of courtesy” due to its energies promoting love, equality, and protection to anyone within its environment. Our root and sacral chakras become activated and strengthened when working with this stone, and will help bring drive, focus, determination, and control back into your life. This stone helps you get back on track and focused on what’s most important to you, and not everyone around you. Bronzite instills the courage from deep within to stand up for yourself and take assertive action to get things done. When trying new things or opportunities such as a job interview, vacations or even a date, we recommend carrying or wearing a piece of Bronzite on you. It works to keep you grounded and comfortable in situations that would commonly cause you anxiety and distress.
This mineral is also perfect for anyone working on overcoming confidence or self-esteem issues. Bronzite assists in removing that inner hesitation that is constantly holding us back from what we truly want to do in this world. Its a stone of “doing”, and pushes us to be active and engaged in activities, get togethers, and social gatherings. Bronzite also encourages you to spread your positivity throughout the community and the ones closest to you. Its energies radiate through you so that you may channel these energies into your environment.
Bronzite is a very strong crystal alone, but can become even stronger when paired in conjunction with other special stones. The Council recommends using higher vibration stones such as Phenacite, Danburite, Angelite, Sugilite, and Black Kyanite. All these stones share high frequency energy that will expand one's mind and consciousness. Bronzite is the perfect stone to pull all that energy and knowledge down to a physical, earthly level so that it may be used for the good of all. When trying to open and unlock one's heart, use Rose Quartz or Rhodonite with Bronzite to help pull any trauma and emotional issues weighing down on ones chest. By removing these “scars”, this new energy will give a sense of freedom that you may have never felt before. When ones heart is clear, it tends to radiate throughout the body in an attempt to cleanse our minds and souls as well. Lastly, its very important to cleanse and clear your Bronzite weekly or when done using it in deep, intuitive meditation sessions. When pulling energy down and rooting it to an earthly level, it may tend to pick up unwanted energies as well. It works as a filter to hold on to the bad, and allow you to receive the good.
