Bronzite has an energy that helps to promote peace and harmony, and will assist the growth of feelings of compassion and forgiveness.
In stressful situations they will help you to remain calm, and may assist you not to lose your temper when you are feeling challenged by life situations.
These stones have powerful metaphysical properties that are helpful to use for meditation and they have a number of excellent healing attributes.
They are beneficial to use to grid a room, as they have a strong protective energy as well as helping to cleanse the area of negativity.
The meaning of this stones name relates to its bronze-like color. This is a trade name for the mineral Enstatite, and these stones may also be a blend of Enstatite and Augite.
The color of these stones is commonly deep bronzey brown with some pieces having quite beautiful chatoyant red and golden patches in them.
These iron rich stones are found in India, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Germany, Austria, Greenland, Norway, Finland and the USA.
The structure of these stones may occur in the massive form, in the lamellar, meaning it forms with sheets of material naturally attached together, and occasionally as crystals, although this is not common.
This is a strong stone to aid psychic protection, and is known for its action to send negative energy back to the sender.
But one of the problems is that it returns negative energy to where it came from, but it doesn't stop there. The negative energy bounces back to you again, causing an ongoing bounce back and forth.
To stop this, use this stone in combination with another strong psychic protection stones rather then using it alone.
My favorite stone that has crystal properties for both psychic protection and grounding is Black Tourmaline, and it is good combined with Bronzite to simply break the connection.
These stones are excellent to use to grid a room, as they will cleanse the area of negativity, as well as being very protective.
This stone has a lovely higher heart chakra vibration that encourages an increase of compassion and forgiveness, which may create a positive energetic space for meditation.
They help to boosts harmonious energy and may stimulate an increase in civility and respect for others who are in the vicinity.
They resonate within the sacral and base chakra as well as within the earth chakra, where they make a good connection to aid grounding.
This stone has a number of beneficial healing properties and in particular it may be advantageous to wear a piece of Bronzite jewelry if you are worn out or particularly fatigued.
It may be beneficial to have a piece on your body if you have been feeling tired or even exhausted as it is an iron rich stone that may be helpful to aid you when you are lacking energy.
It is easy to buy pieces of this stone, and this may be helpful as it is reputed to assist the body of anyone who has an overly alkaline condition, as it is known to help to bring it back to an acid state.
It is also known to aid the assimilation of both iron and magnesium, and the energy of these stones may also be helpful if you are feeling stressed or anxious.
Their vibration may assist you to feel composed, and may aid you to remain even-tempered when there is a possibility that you could lose your temper when you are provoked by your life circumstances.
As mentioned above these stones are useful for psychic protection, as they will send negative energy back to where it comes from, but the energy will then return to you.
To prevent psychic attack combine it with stones that create an energetic barrier around you.
Specific stones that you could use for this purpose includes Cookeite, Fire Agate, Black Tourmaline, Aegirine, Tantalite, Maori Greenstone aka Pounamu Stone and Kimberlite.
These crystals also have a good spiritual grounding energy and may benefit by being combined with other grounding stones.
Other good grounding stones that could be used with it include Black Spinel, Black Tourmaline, Black Obsidian or Black Diopside.
There are a large number of stones that will help stress, but my favorite stones to use for this purpose includes the stress relief stones that contain natural lithium.
This includes Lithium Quartz, Holmquistite, Lilac Lepidolite and Amblygonite.
