Bronzite is a form of weathered enstatite. The small amount of iron gives it a metallic-bronzish lustre that many have coveted for their jewelry designs. The large bronzite gemstone tile certainly caught Christine's eye. She played up the bronze and blackish hues of the gemstone with glass beads in the same colour tones.

Just as no two tiles are alike, no two bronzite designs have been the same. Christine chose to place her tile vertically as a pendant. The smaller goldish bronze seed beads separating the larger glass beads were effectively used as a brightening contrast to this distinctive design.
