Origin of Name & Mythology: The name Nuummite which means "derived from Nuuk" in Greenlandic, was given to the rock type which was found near Nuuk, by the town council of Nuuk.
Nuumite is purported to be one of the oldest minerals in existence, about three billion years old, and originates exclusively from Greenland. Its energy can remain extremely quiet until needed, when it suddenly comes to life. It encourages physical presence in the body, as opposed to grounding, and also confers protection.
Nuumite inhabits several dimensions simultaneously, and works on many levels. While maintaining presence, it clears and opens the Throat, Third Eye and Crown Chakras, facilitating higher communication, especially with our spirit guides, and assists multidimensional travel.
Nuumite also encourages self-examination and self-exploration. In addition to the higher work nuumite engenders, it has a powerful physical effect, entering the body with tendrils of energy, similar to static electricity, which then target and “mop up” anything that does not belong, so while it does not necessarily shield against electromagnetic stress, it can help clear up the results of exposure to it. This can work in a similar way with cancer cells and the effects of cancer treatments, as well as pathogens and inappropriate signals from the immune system, for example autoantibodies.
Naisha Ahsian believes it helps us to connect with our shadow side, while Melody suggests that it activates and integrates the chakras, and enhances memory and mental activity.
