History Mythology: The name ‘achmit’ comes from the Greek word ‘Axun’ meaning ‘spear point’ due to its long slender formations. Aegirine is also known as Acmite and at one stage the two were thought to be two separate minerals however it was discovered that they were both pyroxenes and the same mineral.
Metaphysical Healing Properties: Aegirine is a stone that has no boundaries and assists you to be who you are truly meant to be and helps you to understand that you are limitless. It enables you to have more confidence in your decisions and face your ‘Karma’ or the consequence of your action with confidence and integrity. You do this knowing that every lesson learnt needs to be learnt or you will keep repeating the actions that lead you to that point. It is a freeing stone that lets you release all past ties that are holding you back.
Aegirine is an uplifting stone that will assist with depression and helps to block negative emotions that are around you and come within your energy/auric field. It protects against both mental, physical and psychic attacks. Aegirine helps to clear any blockages from your aura which can assist with damage done by electrical energy field exposure (EMF Radiation). Affirmation: Everything that happens allows me to grow and learn.
