Hypersthene Tumblestones

Hypersthene tumblestones, measuring approximately 10-20MM along their longest side.

These stones are typically a dark colour – usually black with a gorgeous silvery optical effect on the surface of the stone.

This mineral is quite rare, and isn’t often found tumbled. Due to its interesting optical effect, we typically don’t recommend keeping the stone in a static display. Because of that, we think it should be somewhere where it can be handled and looked at easily.

Hypersthene can also be known as Enstatite, and is sometimes mis-sold as ‘velvet Labradorite’. This is misleading, as it is not a Labradorite at all.

What are tumblestones?

Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
