Hypersthene (Orthopyroxene) is Orthorhombic Pyroxene: (Mg,Fe)SiO3
The name “hypersthene” comes from Greek and means “over strength”.
It is a member of the Bronzite family.
This iron-rich stone is found in igneous and metamorphic rocks and Iron and stony Meteorites and is considered a transforming mineral.
It gives courage, confidence and determination, encouraging a proactive approach to life.
Hypersthene calms, soothes, and quiets in general and is especially helpful when the mind is overactive.
It arranges both energy and thought in a more organised manner.
By calming, grounding and protecting, it is an excellent aid to deep meditation, profound inner reflection and can take you on journeys into other dimensions of consciousness.
As it calms without drowsiness, it can be useful in stress situations where you need to remain alert.
