⚖️ Weight: 552g
The alkaline pegmatites of the Zomba-Malosa district of Malawi are famous for their unique geology and mineralogy. Malawian Aegirine crystals represent some of the best in the world, but obtaining this incredible material comes with its challenges. Malawi is a land-locked country in south-eastern Africa, and Mount Malosa is a very remote and dangerously steep area. Furthermore, because there aren’t any major industrial mines in the region, miners use primitive equipment, and sometimes even their bare hands to dig out specimens. All the while, they also have to scale and balance themselves upon the steep cliff sides without modern climbing equipment such as ropes or pitons. It is astounding that given these precarious conditions, they are able to preserve beautiful, undamaged specimens such as this gorgeous example.
Aegirine is an inosilicate mineral of the clinopyroxene group. It’s known for expressing a dark green to an intensely deep, green colour that is so dark, it appears nearly black.
Aegirine crystals have the ability to clear the Aura and are wonderful tools for removing negative or stuck energies from all levels of the subtle bodies, and for activating the positive flow that should be there.
Aegirine crystals are excellent for protection, and they also help you to find the courage to shine your inner light, even in dark and negative places. These are stones of confidence and strength, carrying the knowledge that light has nothing to fear from darkness, but that light indeed is the healer of darkness. There are few stones as effective as Aegirine for breaking the attachment of negative entities to one's etheric body.
Aegirine can assist you in 'seeing the light' when you have become depressed, hopeless, unhappy, or otherwise aligned your thoughts with negative energies. It can help you to identify your own negative thoughts and attitudes, and to shift those energies to more positive expressions. It carries the energies of enlightened action, karmic understanding, and spiritual commitment.
