BRONZITE

Overview:Bronzite is marketed as particularly effective against curses. Traditionally however, iron-bearing crystal such as Bronzite return ill-wishing, curses or spells back to the source magnified three times over, perpetuating the problem as it 'bounces', becoming stronger each time, whereas Black Tourmaline neutralizes it.A protective, grounding crystal, helpful in discordant situations where you feel powerless and in the grip of events beyond your control, Bronzite restores composure and assists in keeping a cool head. A 'stone of courtesy' that strengthens non-judgemental discernment, pinpoints your most important choice and promotes decisive action, Bronzite allows you simply to 'be', entering dynamic state of non–action, non–doing.

This stone is a silicate compound of magnesium and iron. Iron, in contrast to magnesium, is much less present in bronzite (up to 15%). The color of this stone brings about a halo of grounding, reflecting the need to take a step back and think about adjusting and redistributing our forces. It is useful in working with chakras, especially with the sacral energy center. It helps in developing a spiritual transformation.
