Geology/History

A magnesium silicate belonging to the pyroxene group of minerals alongside Hypersthene, Bronzite is a ferriferous variety of Enstatite with approx 12-30% Fe+2. This Iron bearing Enstatite & hypersthene undergo a partial alteration, known as schillerization. The schillerization process causes the separation of the iron into very fine films of oxide & hydroxides achieving a metallic scheen/schiller on the cleavage surfaces that resembles bronze.

Bronzite can occur within many mafic to ultramafic igneous rocks, such as, norite, gabbro, peridotite & the serpentinites which have derived from them. It also occurs in some crystalline schist. Some notable localities are USA, Brazil, Madagascar, Austria, Czech Republic
