Bronzite is a member of the pyroxene group of minerals, belonging with enstatite and hypersthene to the orthorhombic series of the group. Rather than a distinct species, it is really a ferriferous variety of enstatite, which owing to partial alteration has acquired a bronze-like sub-metallic luster on the cleavage surfaces. Enstatite is magnesium silicate with the magnesium partly replaced by small amounts (up to 12%) of Fe+2. In the bronzite variety the iron oxide ranges up to 30%, and with still more iron there is a passage to hypersthene. The ferriferous varieties are liable to a particular kind of alteration, known as schillerization, which results in the separation of the iron as very fine films of oxide and hydroxides along the cleavage cracks of the mineral. The cleavage surfaces therefore exhibit a metallic sheen or schiller, which is even more pronounced in hypersthene than in bronzite. The colour of Bronzite is green or brown.

Masses sufficiently large for cutting are found in Kupferberg in the Fichtelgebirge, and in Kraubat near Leoben in Styria.
Bronzite is considered to assist in muscle pain and cramps, especially in the shoulders. It gives you the courage to be yourself and strengthens your self-asteem.
It promotes your spiritual development, beauty and sophistication and gives you insight into caring and love. It is also said to boost hearing, the sense of tones and sounds, making it excellent for singers and musicians.
