AEGIRINE

Overview:Named after Aegir, Scandinavian god of the sea, Aegirine is an excellent crystal for generating and focusing energy beams, removing emotional blockages and enhancing positive vibrations. Extremely helpful in cases of psychic attack or negative thinking, it repairs the aura after attachments have been removed. This stone helps you to see the bigger picture and assists in healing relationship problems or overcoming the grief of separation. It protects against the energetic incursions of an old love. Empowering the quest for your true self and the ability to do what is needed from the heart, Aegirine encourages following your own truth without conforming to group pressure. Aegirine can be used to boost the body's own healing systems and the healing energy of other crystals.

Usage: Self-esteem, integrity, sensitivity, focusing goals, immune system, muscles and muscle pain, bones, metabolic system, nerves.

Actinolite is one of the amphibole group of minerals. Because its molecular structure is made up of long double chains of silicon atoms, aegirine forms long, thin crystals, sometimes even fibers.

Aegirine has been found in: Langesunfjord, Norway; Narssarssuaq, Greenland; the Kola Peninsula of Russia; Mt. Molosa, Malawi; and Pocos de Caldas, Brazil. In North America, the premier locality is Magnet Cove, Garland Co., Arkansas. Aegirine was also found in Beemerville, New Jersey, and in the High Mountains of Montana. In Canada, excellent specimens, perhaps the finest of all, come from Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec.
Aegirine, which is also called as acmite, forms impressive crystals that have become classics among collectors. These tall opaque monument-like crystals that jut majestically out from their host rocks are simply splendid. The steeply inclined pyramid on top of the prismatic crystals is very characteristic and thus diagnostic of Aegirine.Well-shaped specimens of Aegirine are highly valued to collectors. Unusually steep crystals, hardness, and color are its striking features.
