Hypersthene Crystal Healing Properties:
Hypersthene arranges both energy and thought in a more organized manner, so we can have a clearer idea of the way forward and realize solutions to problems. 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, traveling beyond the limitations of body and mind. As it calms without drowsiness, it can be effective in situations of stress where one needs to remain alert and express oneself clearly, such as in making a presentation. Hypersthene brings awareness of one's shadow side into consciousness and aids emotional healing through understanding and self-acceptance.
Hypersthene History and Geological Description:
Hypersthene (Mg, Fe)SiO3 comes from the Greek word hyper meaning “above” and stenos meaning “power” and translates to over strength. Hypersthene is found in both igneous and some metamorphic rocks, as well as in both stoney and iron meteorites. Hypersthene is the name given to the mineral when a significant amount of both enstatite and ferrosilite are present. Also known locally as Labrador-hornblende or Paulite, due to large amounts mined off the island of Paul, located near the coast of Labrador. Labradorite-hypersthene is also called Norite.
