The shimmering, yet earthy brown finish of bronzite is what makes it one of our favorites. This stone can fit well into that natural-looking piece, or an elegant fall necklace. Our Bronzite beads are a wonderful chocolate brown color that contain bronze-colored spangles and metallic areas that make bronzite a very interesting and unique stone.
Bronzite is a variety of a silicate mineral called enstatite that contains iron and magnesium. This metallic brown mineral gets its name from the Greek word for "resistor" because it doesn't melt easily. Bronzite deposits are found Burma, Brazil, Kenya, India, Mexico, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Tanzania and the Unites States. Bronzite beads are rich in iron with a metallic luster.
