Bronzite returns negative energy back to the sender so that they may learn and understand from their actions. From Judy Hall's The Encyclopedia of Crystals ISBN 1-59233-266-8 we learn that, "Bronzite is a protective and grounding crystal, helpful in discordant situations where you feel powerless and in the grip of events beyond your control. Bronzite restores composure and assists in keeping a cool head. Bronzite is a 'stone of courtesy' that strengthens nonjudgmental discernment, pinpoints your most important choices, and promotes decisive action. Bronzite allows you to simply 'be', entering a dynamic state of nonaction and nondoing."
