Greenland - Nuummite - The Oldest Stone

Nuummite is found in an area north of Nuuk Greenland. The formation from which it comes has an origin which dates back almost 4 billion years making it some of the oldest rock formations on the planet. It is of volcanic origin and is believed to have formed about 3 billion years ago. Subsequent influences on the rock (metamorphism) have given rise to the striking mixture of crystals which gives Nuummite its unique appearance. Although this stone has been found in other areas of the world only the stuff from Greenland is developed enough to be suitable for gemstone use.

Nuummite's schiller effect is amazing. The different bandings created by crystalization creates an optical golden brown glow effect. The effect is called iridescence and really comes out on polished surfaces creating an effect almost like flames in a fire.

Metaphysically it is a powerful stone which brings to us the understanding of the power of the void in the potential of creation. Used in meditation it takes us deep within the subconscious to access other times and existances. It is an excellent grounding stone as well as a protective stone. It is useful for both when manifesting the highest vibrations available to us. It can be used to increase psychic abilities and intuition. Along with this it assists one in becoming one with or synchronizing with the elemental forces of the Earth. It's defensive qualities make it an excellent shield against negativity.

Along with Nuummite other unique minerals from Greenland are starting to grace our community. People native to Greenland have been working with these minerals for years. Only now is some of this information becoming available to us. I encourage you to check out Nuummite as it truly is an amazing stone and while your at it check out some other minerals from this locale. Although not much has been written to date working with them is well worth the effort.

Metaphysical Smoky Branberg Crystal Scepter

In this listing one handsome large Branberg (Brandberg) amethyst quartz scepter with a Smoky point and clear amethyst shaft.

The scepter is in its natural formation, it has been smudged and cleansed. It is offered to you unwrapped, for the etsy shopper I will wrap in either 20 gauge sterling round or 12 carat 20 gauge gold round for the listed price.

This crystal has been in my collection since 2002. It measures a generous 3 7/8" large and 1 1/4" wide. Brandberg Crystals are from Gobobos, Brandberg, Namibia and are some of the most powerful Crystals on earth. Brings the energy of the stars into the soul. Produces a naturally balanced, solid state, energy field. Amplifies both body energy and thought.

Additional images can be seen at:

"Branberg (Brandberg) Amethyst, Clear or Smoky crystals yield from Nambia, most all contain rainbows, prismatic veils, enhydros and true hematite or lepidocrsite inclusions either within or surrounding the host crystal. Certainly all contain superior beauty but are also magical and healing. Those Branberg specimens in my collection inhabit most all those characters and it’s not often I choose to part with any of them.

My Grooms Suit - Grey Flannel - Bridal Fair 2010

In this listing 16 little gift boxes. Smaller than the other "evv" boxes, making them perfect for small treasure's.
Made from acid free archival card stock. Themed warm gray, brown, sandstone and dusty blue colors.

These boxes like the others from "evv" are sturdy, strong and durable. The inserts are full bottom matching the lids and box bottoms.

This is a eco-friendly design and the construction is so simple. Each box measures 2 7/8" X 1 1/2" (really just a hair shy of 3") and 4 1/8" corner to corner each has been meticulously folded, scored and center point glued with a shape to complete a ready made hand built box. The boxes are empty inside. But ready for your fine creative treasure's. Conveniently each box is left "un-marked" by ecovintagevegan, allowing you take claim for these small gifted wonders.

This style of folding paper, yields from the turn of the century, where lady folk congregated to make and reproduce these little boxes from post cards and birthday cards.

Certainly easy enough for everyone to assemble, but why? when I have done the work for you.

Shipped Priority Mail in the U.S. and First Class else where.

Metropolitan Museum Journal Gift Box Set

In this listing 12 traditional recycled handmade gift boxes from the pages of a Metropolitan Museum Journal. Resource manuals and prints from my college days, these books have began to see their age, the bindings, threads and pages in disrepair from not being stored correctly.

Saving the original prints for another project, these pages all in black and white depict the color prints from the Met seminars. Each box cut and folded from a 9 1/2" square page, with complimentary hand cut page inserts. Paper from the 50's and 60's retained a linen quality that is subtle to the touch. I loved making these boxes from those recycled pages.

Measurements 3 1/2" X 3 1/2" x 1 5/8" and 4 7/8" from corner to corner. Box bottoms and tops are complimentary but do not match. Strong and durable construction. 12 boxes for the listed price, plus, three for your eco gift.

Boxes shipped Priority Mail in the United States, other countries please convo.
