Nuummite is one of the oldest stones on earth, formed 2.8 billion years ago & is a rare metamorphic rock that consists of the amphibole minerals gedrite & anthophyllite. These two amphiboles form exsolution lamellae that give the rock its typical iridescence. Other common minerals in the rock are pyrite, pyrrhotite & chalcopyrite, which form shimmering yellow bands in polished specimens.
In Greenland the rock was formed by two consecutive metamorphic overprints of an originally igneous rock. The intrusion took place around 2800 million years ago in the Archean. Nuummite is named after Nuuk in Greenland, where it was found & is the only location it occurs.
