Healing Energies, Metaphysical Properties, Uses and Meaning
Aegirine is considered the Guardian Stone
With its connection to the earth and the natural world, Aegirine activates a strong, protective energy, guarding the aura and physical body, as well as fortifying the Spirit in times of difficulty. It eliminates negative thoughts, energies and attachments, and replaces them with the Light of the positive. It promotes wholeness and healing.

Carrying or wearing Aegirine helps force the release of negative attachments that may have taken root in the aura's protective field weakened by abuse of alcohol or drugs, or by smoking cigarettes (though the effect is more gradual). Working with Aegirine in body layouts or in conjunction with other subtle body healing can, in time, regenerate the damaged auric shield. [Simmons, 5]

Aegirine is a powerful protector of those suffering jealousy, malice, mental influence or psychic attack from others. Use once a week as a wand in the hand you write with to thrust energies away from you in all directions as you state your intent of protection. [Eason, 192][Melody, 81][Hall II, 40]

Crystal Forms
and Aggregates As long, thin, prismatic or bladed crystals, usually with a pointed pyramid on top (clinopinacoidal), and very often embedded in a matrix. Fibrous masses, radiating acicular sprays, and interlocking thin prismatic crystals are also common. May also be in reticulated masses and in grainy aggregates embedded in a matrix. Crystals are often striated lengthwise, and doubly terminated crystals are occasionally found.

Places found in

Aegirine comes from Norway at Ovre Eiker and Kongsberg in Buskerud; and at Langesunfjord in Telemark and Vestfold. Other well-know Aegirine occurrences are the Khibiny Massif in the Kola Peninsula of Russia; Narssarssuk Greenland; and Pocos de Caldas, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Some of the most outstanding crystals of Aegirine, in lustrous slender crystals often perched on a matrix come from Mt. Malosa, Zomba District, Malawi.

In the U.S., the premier Aegirine locality is Magnet Cove, Garland Co., Arkansas, where slender crystals can be found crisscrossing in a light colored matrix. In Canada, outstanding specimens, often associated with rare minerals, comes from the quarries at Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec. Also recently producing fine specimens is the nearby Demix-Varennes quarry in Varennes, Quebec.
