Bronzite is a "weathered" hypersthene. The chemical weathering process is often caused by moisture and temperature. Bronzite exhibits irresistible little flecks of metallic schiller especially along its surfaces. The inclusions sparkle like little flecks of gold in the light. These beads are quite heavy compared to others of the exact same cut. This dark metallic stone would looks nice with both tiger eye and tiger iron. Bronzite can be found in North America, Africa, and Europe.
