History: 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.

A grid is a power structure that you create with crystals to enforce an intention or affirmation. Using this crystal in a grid formation, helps to bring about the change you seek.
Create a 5 point star with 5 crystals. Place the 6th stone in the center. Under this center stone, place a piece of paper with your intention written on it. It can also be the name of a person you wish to do a long distance healing for. Start your intention and then trace the star grid pattern with incense, herbs or use your center crystal (master stone) to seal the deal. Read more here
Cleansing & Charging Hypersthene
~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.
~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy. A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

The Power of Color
Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you. A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality. It contributes in what attracts you to it. The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
