Hypersthene stones embody a useful energy that may help to boost psychic gifts, and may especially aid you with opening up clairaudience and clairvoyance also known as psychic visions.
They are known as magical stones, and this may partly be because their vibration can help you to find solutions to problems quite quickly.
They may particularly assist you when you are searching for answers to an important question.
Use them while considering what you desire in your life, to aid you to strengthen your ability to manifest your intentions.
They also have excellent attributes for assisting healing, and have metaphysical properties that make it advantageous to use them in meditation. Their energy may soothe you if you feel stressed or anxious or if you are tired and need to relax.
Hypersthene is in the same family as Bronzite, and is a member of the pyroxene family.
It was named in 1804, and its name is said to come from two Greek words "hyper" - above and "stonos" - power, and overall the meaning is "over strength".
This was related to the fact that when it was discovered it was confused with Amphibole, but as it was harder it was named to show that fact.
This stone contains both iron and magnesium in various amounts along with other minerals such as silicon, depending on the specimen.
It is also known as Enstatite, Ferrosilite and Eulite, but according to mineral sources there is no iron in pure Enstatite and no magnesium in pure Ferrosilite.
Because of this the name of this stone was changed, and it is now known as Orthopyroxene, but I prefer to stick to the name Hypersthene as it makes it easier for you to purchase pieces as this is what it is generally called in shops.
These stones are found in various parts of North America such as Canada and the USA, as well as in European countries including Norway, Sweden, the Czech Republic and Greenland, and within Australia and New Zealand.
They are predominantly found in the massive form and less commonly as prismatic crystals. These stones have unusual optical properties.
Depending on the direction they are looked at they may show different colors. When you hold them in your hand and move them you will see the various colors within the stones.
Their color is commonly a deep brown, with lovely shimmering lighter colors through the stone. They may also be slightly lighter brown, green, black or gray.
Their color may depend on how you look at the stone. They are unusual looking stones that can be hard to photograph due to the unique optical quality of the stones.
This is a similar idea to looking at the colors in Labradorite, and because of this similarity it is also called Velvet Labradorite in some places, even though they are not related.
As this stone has a number of useful metaphysical properties as well as healing attributes, the best way of using these crystals is for meditation.
You may choose to meditate with one of these stones on your third eye, which is known to be particularly helpful, but it will also be effective if you simply have it anywhere within your auric field.
It is advantageous to meditate with one of these stones while you concentrate on a issue that you need an answer regarding.
You might find that the solution comes into your mind soon after you have finished meditating, if you relax and allow it to happen.
These stones have long been known for their strong action to stimulate magical gifts. They are known to boost mystical or magical gifts, if you specifically work with them for this purpose.

Their vibration also boosts the ability to see visions or to hear the voice of spirit. Hypersthene crystals are well known for their action to assist you to receive
messages from Spirit.
Once you have created a good connection with the stone you are using, use it in your daily meditation when you may find that it helps you in a number of ways.

It is of value not to try and push for the answer, but to simply ask, then relax and allow it to come to you. Use it in meditation and ask it to work with you to achieve what you desire.
These unusual stones resonate well within the higher spiritual chakras, including the soul star and the crown chakra. These crystals have a good effect that may help you to manifest your intentions.
