Known to be “The oldest mineral in existence”, Nuummite is a laminate, or sheet of compressed rock (presumably anthophyllite and gedrite) which is found in an area north of Nuuk, Southern Greenland. The area in which it is mined is accessible by boat only, in an iron-ore region which dates back over 4 billion years.
Nuummite is found in high, rugged, mountain terrain, making it very difficult to obtain. It is of volcanic origin and is believed to have formed about 3 billion years ago. Subsequent influences on the rock (metamorphism) have given rise to the striking mixture of crystals which gives Nuummite its unique appearance.
Nuummite’s Schiller effect is amazing. The different bandings created by crystallization creates an optical golden brown glow effect. The effect is called iridescence and really comes out on polished surfaces creating an effect almost like flames in a fire. The base color of Nuummite is charcoal gray to black, and its iridescent colors include red, orange, gold, silver, yellow, green, blue and violet.
Metaphysically it is a powerful stone which brings to us the understanding of the power of the void in the potential of creation. Used in meditation it takes us deep within the subconscious to access other times and existences. It is an excellent grounding stone as well as a protective stone.
It is useful for both when manifesting the highest vibrations available to us. It can be used to increase psychic abilities and intuition. Along with this it assists one in becoming one with or synchronizing with the elemental forces of the Earth. It’s defensive qualities make it an excellent shield against many forms of negativity.
Nuummite is also known as “The Magicians Stone”. The scintillating flashes in Nuummite assist in seeing beyond the outer facade of life, and allows one to access / see the inner reality that is present. As a protective stone, Nuummite strengthens the auric shield, providing a grounded presence within the depth of the ages.
With its strong electro-magnetic field, Nuummite quickly restores energy and power that has been depleted by karmic debts, or other causes, and clears blockages including those that are self-imposed, reprogramming cellular memory. Severing entanglements that stem from past karma, Nuummite removes the associated difficulties. Having cleansed the sense of self that derives from those experiences, Nuummite then connects you to your true self. Cutting through to your core, it allows you to reprogram your thoughts to a higher frequency.
As the oldest living mineral in our world, Nuummite opens and activates all Chakras and allows them to synchronize and resonate in complete harmony. It does the same with all of our physical / energenic / spiritual bodies. Nuummite helps create an extremely strong energy field which protects us from pollutants and negative energy. It removes energy blockages and muddy pockets of auric energy, allowing bright clear energy to come through.
Nuummite brings us inner strength, depth of spirit and a calm reflective nature. Nuummite teaches us to see with our hearts, and reminds us that all limitations, bonds and restraints in our lives are illusions, making it much easier to let them go. Nuummite can also stimulate the intellect, and aid in memory loss and recall. Nuummite has also been used by the ancients to invoke visions and provide insight into the psychic and ethereal realms.
