Nuummite – (Root Chakra) – (Zodiac of Sagittarius)
Nuummite is a stone I encountered about ten years ago, and it was pretty rare to find at that time. It’s easier to obtain now, but it can still be fairly pricey. It is definitely a worthy addition to any collection and crystal healing toolkit. I find it a treasure to look at and to meditate with.
Science – This unusual gemstone one of the oldest gemstones in the World, and is only found in Greenland. Given the weather in Greenland, it can only be mined during the warmer months, so there isn’t a huge amount of this on the market. It is comprised of Anthophyllite and Gedrite. Mostly black in color, the internal crystal structure has a lot of flash in the light. This is a spectacular stone to look at in the sunlight!
Metaphysical Attributes – Nuumite is a powerfully protective gemstone. It guards against hostility, psychic attacks, ill-wishes, and spirit oppression. In wand form, this stone is excellent for dissolving blockages, cord cutting, or removing dark attachments from the aura. It is excellent for deep meditation or intense ritual work, as it will create a protective shield around the aura and deflect any external energetic intrusions. It lifts your energy and ensures that personal energy is flowing smoothly and cleanly. Be careful of your intention while using Nuummite, because ill intentions can be deflected back to you.
Nuummite supports deep Inner exploration. This stone helps us to explore our Shadow Self without getting lost in the emotions connected with some of the Shadow qualities. It’s grounding and uplifting at the same time. It is not afraid of exploring the dark, because it is connected to the light. It encourages us to learn from the past and not to repeat previous mistakes. Nuummite helps us identify if we are standing in our own way and helps us discard those limiting beliefs.
This gemstone is a valuable tool for past-life and karmic work. It allows you to identify if a present day issue is being influenced by past-life energy, and helps you to release it. This stone helps us discover the root cause of any guilt, fear and shame that is caused from karmic blockages or shadows. Nuummite then allows us to look deeply into the issue, understand what we need to learn from it, and dissolve it completely, freeing ourselves from the past-life influence.
Physical Effects – Nuummite boosts energy and lifts the Spirit. Said to relieve stress and insomnia.
Practice Mantra – Sit in a seated meditation position, holding the Nuummite in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine yourself surrounded by a large, sturdy mountain. You are warmed by the heat within the mountain. Repeat this mantra, “I am Safe. I am in the Light. I am willing to look into the Shadow and discover what I need to Release and Grow.”
Alternately, hold a Nuummite mala and chant this mantra 108 times.
