Nuummite is Amphibolite composed of Gedrite with Anthophyllite, and it is named after the Nuuk, Greenland locality where it was first discovered. It is considered one of the oldest known stones on Earth that is said to have been formed around 2.8 billion years ago. While true Nuummite are only found in Greenland, small deposit with same makeup composition was also found in Finland and exhibited very similar characteristic. There are many misidentified ones in the market today, genuine Nuummites from the Greenlandic locality have pretty distinctive features, the flashes are usually elongated blade shaped rather than small short coppery flakes (Coppernite) or radiating feathery streaks (Arfvedsonite), and the colors of the flashes can range from golden bronze tone to golden and blue, and in rare occasion in red.
Metaphysically and energetically, Nuummite in general is a grounding and protective type with very strong connection to Earth, ancient origins, and the physical realm.
