Aegirine is a mineral that belongs to the pyroxene group and is known for its striking dark green to black coloration often accompanied by a glassy lustre. It typically forms as prismatic crystals in igneous rocks, such as syenites and nepheline syenites. It was named after Aegir, the Norse god of the sea, due to its association with alkaline-rich environments like those found in oceanic settings.
Metaphysically Aegirine is believed to have protective, grounding and balancing qualities.
It can assist by creating a shield around the aura to maintain energetic boundaries and guard against negative energies and psychic attack. Aegrine can help you connect with the Earth's energies and promoting a sense of stability and balance. It may aid in maintaining a strong connection to reality while engaging in spiritual or transformative work. Linked with the base and third eye chakras, it may help balance and align these energy centres, promoting a harmonious flow of energy throughout the body.
