Hypersthene is an enchanting black crystal with a reputation as a stone of magic. Hypersthene has been associated with aiding clairvoyance and developing psychic abilities.
Many call Hypersthene the Answer Stone, because it is believed to help the beholder make difficult decisions or find solutions to long unanswerable questions or desires. For this reason, Hypersthene is also considered a stone of Manifestation and a powerful tool for discovering and fulfilling one’s dreams or life’s purpose.
The warm inner light of Hypersthene resonates with the Root Chakra, our foundation. As Hypersthene is thought to bring abundance through manifestation, it is also supportive of the Solar Plexus Chakra, or where we bring our desires into reality and share them with the world. Because of Hypersthene’s connection to clairvoyance, it is also used commonly on the Third Eye Chakra, if developing or enhancing these abilities is desired.
Hypersthene is considered a natural birthstone for Libra
* Hypersthene Mineral Information (Hypersthene is no longer an official name recognized by the IMA, but it is still commonly used for the midpoint in the Enstatite-Ferrosilite series)
Hypersthene is a part of a solid solution series. Just as two liquids can mix together and become a liquid solution, solid matter can too become 'mixed' when a particular element is interchangeable with another element present in the environment. Over time, replacing just a single element in a mineral will change it into another type of mineral entirely. A 'solid solution series' is how we describe this transition and the steps in between. The minerals Enstatite and Ferrosilite are the 'end members', meaning they are at either end of the spectrum.
We begin with the mineral Enstatite MgSiO3. When Iron (Fe) is present in Enstatie's environment, it can start to replace the Magnesium (Mg). Ultimately, if there is sufficient Iron, the Enstatite will become Ferrosilite FeSiO3, all of the Mg has been replaced by Fe and the Enstatite has been naturally transformed into Ferrosilite.
When there are almost equal parts Mg and Fe, the stone is known (unofficially now) as Hypersthene and has the formula (Mg,Fe)SiO3 - Bronzite is also a step in this series.
