Information about Bronzite

This stone is an interesting mix of green and brown – it is a silicate of Magnesium, and a Iron rich pyroxene.

It contains some small inclusions that give it an interesting lustre, and it can look quite similar to bronze sometimes.

It is found in several countries around the world, including Germany, Greenland, Brazil, and certain states of the USA.

Due to the inclusions, it has a fine optical schiller which can look amazing when the stone is well polished – as such it is generally tumbled, carved into decorative objects, or occasionally carved into cabochons.
