According to metaphysical beliefs, bronzite is used to ground us. It promotes clarity and certainty of thinking and actions. These are not brash actions though, as bronzite has been called the "stone of courtesy" since it can instill politeness. Bronzite jewelry has been worn to help alleviate nervous energy that is generated when we are placed in new situations. Those who use stones for metaphysical practices have been known to use bronzite for increasing self-esteem, promoting decision making, dispelling negativity and enhancing creativity. Bronzite is a versatile stone that is said to resonate with most chakras, though it is most closely tied to the sacral and base chakras. Though not a birthstone, bronzite has come to be associated with the astrological Zodiac sign of Leo.
