Hypersthene (sometimes referred to as Orthopyroxene) helps create good personal and business relationships. This stone helps remove a critical attitude and encourages you to cooperate with the people around you. It also enhances clairaudience, helping you hear the best solution to any given issue.
This stone has been historically considered a rest stone, alleviating stress and the negative emotions that arise from being tired or overworked. It also aids with achieving a deeper, more restful sleep.
The name hypersthene roughly translates to “above average strength” in Greek. This refers to its hardness in comparison to similar looking stones.
Hypersthene is a type of inosilicate mineral. It is typically brown, grey, or white in color. This stone has been found worldwide, including in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.
This stone is associated with the root, crown, third eye, throat, and solar plexus chakras.
You can place this stone in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
This stone is associated with Sagittarius, Leo, and Aries.
Hypersthene is considered an excellent stone for meditation, as it is a powerful stress reliever. It is also thought to aid the blood and gut.
