Nuummite / Jenakite

Historical Information

The name Nuummite, which means “derived from Nuuk” in Greenlandic, was given to the rock type which was found near Nuuk, Vestgronland, Greenland in 1982, by the town council of Nuuk.
This rock was first discovered in 1810 in Greenland by the mineralogist K. L. Giesecke.  Nuummite was defined scientifically by O. B. Bøggild between 1905 and 1924.
Nuummite (or Nuummite) is a trade name for a metamorphic rock consisting primarily of two amphilboles; Asthophylite and Gedrite. It was originally found only in the Godthabsfjord area located in West Greenland near the capital of Nuuk. This material has typically been a black base color with bright iridescent flashes of gold, yellow, copper, red, blue and green.
Nuummite, known to be the oldest mineral in existence, is a "laminate," or sheet of compressed rock (presumably anthophyllite and gedrite) which is found in Southern Greenland. The area in which it is mined is accessible by boat only, in an iron-ore region which dates back over 4 billion years, in high, rugged, mountain terrain. This stone is of volcanic origin and began forming over 3 billion years ago.
A recent find in the Sahara Desert of Mauritania has produced material with iridescent flashes of deep blue Asthophylite needles on a black opaque background. This new material discovered in 2009 has been called Sahara Nuummite or Jenakite.
The Ancient Stone Nuummite is of volcanic origin formed about 3.8 billion years ago, making it one of the oldest stones found on Earth. It is also one of the rarest stones, as it is only found in one place in Greenland, and can only be mined during the thaw in the summer months. Very little Nuummite ever becomes available, and it is even rarer to find it carved into a crystal skull.
