Nuummite is a combination stone comprising Anthophyllite, a magnesium iron silicate, and Gedrite, a lithium amphibole. The base color is charcoal grey or black and it exhibits ‘flecks’ and ‘streaks’ of iridescent/labradorescent range of colors including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet, but most commonly gold. It is only found in Greenland and is thought to be one of the oldest gemstones.
Nuummite: Meanings, Benefits and Properties
The frequency of Nuummite connects to the base, solar plexus, and third eye chakras.
The energy of Nuummite allows one’s consciousness to journey to the vibrational dimension where one’s soul resides. This enables one to acknowledge and understand parts of one’s “self” that one does not like, denies, or ignores. By recognizing and integrating these “dark” parts of one’s consciousness healing can occur which helps one to become “whole”.
Nuummite helps one to step into one’s “inner power” so that one may become confident and accept and love all parts of oneself. It allows one to see one’s gifts and talents and to recognize one’s true nature and thus aids self-mastery. Via the third eye chakra, helps one’s inner vision, intuition, and with clairvoyance.

The rock was first discovered in 1810 in Greenland by the mineralogist K. L. Giesecke. It was defined scientifically by O. B. Bøggild between 1905 and 1924. True Nuummite is only found in Greenland. Due to its iridescent nature, this rare stone is sought after by gemstone dealers, collectors and those interested in the esoteric. It is often sold with tumble finishing.
In 2009, a new Variety of Nuummite was discovered in central Mauritania. Under its unofficial name Jenakite, this Variety is distinctive due to the presence and high density of blue and green Anthophyllite needle-like crystals. Nuummite from Greenland has no blue or green Anthophyllite needle-like crystals.
