Appearance, Uses and History
Bronzite is a member of the Pyroxene group of minerals, specifically an iron-bearing variant of Enstatite.
The iron inclusions have given it an unusual bronze-like luster, showing a metallic shiller. This has led to its common use as a decorative stone, including jewellery usage as cabochons, and beads.
Bronzite occurs in Austria, Brazil, Czechia, England, Greenland, India, South Africa, and the USA.

Hazards and Warnings
Almost all rocks, minerals (and, frankly, almost all other substances on earth) can produce toxic dust when cutting, which can cause serious respiratory conditions including silicosis.
When cutting or polishing rocks, minerals, shells, etc, all work should be done wet to minimise the dust, and a suitable respirator or extraction system should be used.
