Hypersthene is a common rock-forming inosilicate mineral belonging to the group of orthorhombic pyroxenes. Its chemical formula is (Mg,Fe)SiO3. It is found in igneous and some metamorphic rocks as well as in stony and iron meteorites.
According to metaphysical beliefs, hypersthene grounds us in an attempt to shield from hectic stimuli. With less outside "noise," wearers of hypersthene are said to better organize thoughts and find creative solutions to problems. Hypersthene is ideal for holding during meditation.
