Bronzite’s power lies in its iron core. Ancient humans considered iron a gift from the gods because it came from the sky as meteorites. The Roman historian Plutarch referred to it as the “bones of the gods.” Having passed through the heat of Earth’s atmosphere, meteoric iron did not need smelting and could be worked cold, so it was used millennia before iron was extracted from the Earth. The earliest iron artifacts date back seven thousand years.

Iron is a vital constituent in the human organism, essential for transport of hemoglobin in red blood cells and other cellular structures. Without iron, the body’s vitality is low and cannot sustain biochemical processes. Bronzite may aid chronic exhaustion, dramatically improving core strength. It balances masculine and feminine energies within the body or psyche. This stone helps you be more assertive, in standing up for yourself and in decision making.

Sold as a magical protector, Bronzite must be used with care because it may amplify and exacerbate the effects of ill intent, spells, and psychic attack. The energy bounces between attacker and attacked. Adding Black Tourmaline to the crystal mix stops the energetic attack and cuts the connection permanently.

Bronzite energetically cleanses your environment, transmuting negative energies and creating a ring of protection. Within that space, you learn the value of non-doing, experiencing dynamic being. This powerful shamanic stone takes you journeying through other worlds to find your power animal, and guides you to the core of your true self.


Crystal healers use Bronzite’s power to energetically increase the assimilation of iron, boosting the circulation of red blood cells, and to enhance the passage of energy throughout the subtle meridians of the body. A pain reliever, it may regulate overacidity and prevent muscle cramps. Wear or grid it if Wi-Fi emanations are detrimental to your well-being.


Bronzite’s strong magnetic flow provides an inner compass to assist in finding your direction: physically and spiritually. If you tend to judge other people or yourself harshly, Bronzite teaches the power of compassion and forgiveness. If you feel powerless in a situation or have handed your power over to someone else, holding Bronzite calls your power back and helps you take the course of right action. Conversely, if you have been overly willful, especially in past lives, Bronzite teaches you to attune your will so you are guided by your soul rather than your ego.



To create a safe, sacred space for meditation, lay out tumbled Bronzites to form a six-pointed star with a stone at each point.
