Hypersthene Tumbled Stone (RARE).

Most of these tumbled stones have beautiful characteristic schiller banding and chatoyancy. Hypersthene is sometimes incorrectly labelled Ferrosilite or Spectrolite, and sometimes goes by the trade name ‘Velvet Labradorite’.

Please note: The smaller sizes are very flat and thin. From sizes medium upwards we have gotten in some incredible quality, reserved for export – they are truly stunning. These are shaped more like rounded gallets.

Very Good to AA Export Grade. Choose your size.



Hypersthene is an inosilicate mineral and a ‘mid-way member’ of the minerals Enstatite and Ferrosilite. While pure Enstatite contains no Iron, and pure Ferrosillite contains no Magnesium, Hypersthene is the name given to a mineral when both of these elements are present.

Hypersthene got its name from the Greek words “hyper”, meaning above, and “stonos”, which means ‘over strong’. It was in reference to the stone being harder than Hornblende (which it is often confused with).

It’s pearlescent luster is reminiscent of Labradorite, and was found to occur with Labradorite in Labrador (where Labradorite was found), so understandably it was initially believed to be a dark Labradorite.
