It is actually a hypersthene (part of the pyroxene group) that has been chemically "weathered." The process creates a new, opaque stone with a submetallic luster. Weathering on the hypersthene occurs due to moisture and temperature conditions within the igneous rock, metamorphic rock or meteorite where the stone is found. Bronzite often contains inclusions of highly reflective minerals, such as hematite and goethite, which give it a beautiful bronze-like effect when polished (hence its name). Bronzite ranges from greenish-black to brown and has medium hardness. The stone is found in Syria, Austria, South Africa, and the U.S.A. (Montana).
