Introduction to Meaning and Uses of Nuummite
Nuummite, the Sorcerer's Stone, draws from the fiery energies of ancient Earth and combines with the elements of Storm. Black as midnight shadows on moonlit water, this talisman shimmers with mystical gold light, lifting the murky to see what lies beneath. It is a stone of personal magic, increasing the frequency of synchronicities and luck, clairvoyance and intuition, and for those evolved enough to work with its intensity, it allows for journeying deep into the personal psyche, offering a clear vision of one's true Self. It helps to release energies trapped in the subconscious and brings the gift of inner power, healing, and self-mastery. [Simmons, 279][Ahsian, 279][Hall II, 198]
Nuummite is a stone of tremendous grounding, attuned to the elemental forces of Earth that can be drawn upon in times of need. It is an excellent source of energy with a strong electro-magnetic field. It aligns the subtle bodies, strengthens the auric shield, and is fiercely protective against negative energies, manipulations, and environmental pollutants. [Simmons, 279][Hall II, 198-199][Eason, 200][Melody, 435-436]
The oldest mineral on Earth, Nuummite was formed over three billion years ago from volcanic origins. It is a unique combination of Anthophyllite and Gedrite metamorphosed into closely inter-grown crystals of charcoal gray to black with iridescent flashes of gold, though its labradorescent display may include red, orange, yellow, green, silver, blue and violet. It is named for the remote, rugged mountain area north of Nuuk, Greenland, where it was discovered in 1982 and is still painstakingly mined today. Similar rock has been discovered in Canada and the United States, however only the rare Greenland variety has color developed well enough to be suitable for gemstones. [Simmons, 279][www.minershop.com]
Nuummite is also referred to as the Magician's Stone. Stones with elemental magic should always be taken seriously and used respectfully with right intent, as harmful intent rebounds upon the user. [Hall II, 199]

Nuummite Emotional Healing Energy
Nuummite is a stone of empowerment, allowing one to see beyond facades and to understand what lies beneath words and actions, one's own and that of others. It helps one to delve deep into the psyche to discover the hidden hurts, fears, guilt or shame that lies in the subconscious and holds one back.
Nuummite helps to release those trapped energies and to severe emotional constraints from others' inappropriate protection or attempted guidance, manipulations or thought ingraining. It cleanses those experiences, and reaches to the core self, reprogramming thought processes where necessary and allowing one to recognize their true abilities and power.
Nuummite teaches honor and respect, for oneself and others, and demands the fulfillment of duties, promises and obligations made to others that are relevant to this life, and to let go of those that are not. [Hall II, 198-199][Gienger, 61][Melody, 436][Simmons, 279]
Nuummite provides a physical and spiritual grounding, via the chakras, to both the Earth and ethereal body. The deep black and gray of this crystal stimulates the Base Chakra, or Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine. It controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement, and is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When physically out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as lethargy, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation. When its spiritual energies are out of balance, you will feel flighty, disconnected from reality, and distant. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical body regains its strength and stamina, and the spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one's own power. It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership.

Nuummite is a powerful meditative tool for self-discovery. It often facilitates journeys into the ancient, pre-human past, directly to the time of creation, and allows the accessing of past or alternate lives in order to learn about one's true self.

They are helpful talismans to relieve the everyday concerns of our physical, mental and spiritual problems. Dispellers are also known as Restorers. They put things right again after they are out of balance.
Harmonizers, called the chain and band silicates, bind together in a long chain, distributing energy in a balanced, long-term way. They encourage efforts aimed at smoothing a path through difficulties, promoting harmonious relationships within a larger group, like family, and a peaceful acceptance of life's inherent situations.
Nuummite utilizes Water energy, the energy of stillness, quiet strength, and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. It is yielding, formless, yet powerful.

Water energy is traditionally associated with the North area of a home or room. It is associated with the Career and Life Path area, its flowing energy assuring a balance of energy as your life unfolds and flows.
