Aegirine (also known as Acmite) is a sodium iron siicate mineral with a hardness of 6. Its crystal sytem is monoclinic and it forms in columnar, prismatic crystals, which are sometimes striated with pointed terminations. It is dark in color, often black, greenish black,or brownish black. It occurs most commonly in alkali rich volcanic rocks. It is found in Greenland, Russia, Canada, South Africa and the United States.
Aegirine is excellent for removing negative or stuck energies from all levels of the subtle bodies. It provides a high degree of spiritual protection from negative energies or entities. There are few stones as effective as Aegirine for breaking the attachment of negative entities to one's etheric body. Such attachments are not normal for energetically healthy and balanced individuals, but anyone can become vulnerable in moments of strong fear or anger. Working with Aegirine in body layouts or in conjunction with other subtle energy healing modalities can, in time, regenerate the damaged protective auric shield.
Aegirine presents itself as a stone deeply dedicated to service in healing and purification. It has offered itself in a scrificial act of willingness to go deep and cleanse all of the worst and most difficult places within us. While many stones resonate best in the heart and upper chakras, Aegirine is willing to enter into the lowest chakras. This stone carries a vibrational charge that is so deeply opposite the negative charges of our disharmonies that they are drawn to Aegirine as inexorably as to a magnet.
Aegirine attracts everything in us that is impure. Aefirine is unafraid of what we may find repugnant and what we therefore may not wish to regard in ourselves. Aegirine is like the diligent worker who does what is needed whether it is agreeable or disagreeable.
