The Real Sorcerer's Stone and the fictional Harry Potter's Philosopher's Stone

The stone in the popular books of the Harry Potter series goes by two names. In the UK the actual name of the book is The Philosopher's Stone, while in the U.S. the name was given, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone mainly because children and young adults living in the United States wouldn't be familiar with the real world mythology of the Philosopher's stone.

The Sorcerer's Stone, a completely fictional stone from the Harry Potter books, creates the Elixir of Life, extending the drinkers lifespan and also transforms metal into pure gold. Since it was only a fictional stone, Harry Potter replica's are made of resin in a ruby red color and is somewhat translucent. Harry Potter fan's can own a piece of the story to remember and have it displayed in its only golden display case.

However if you came here looking for the real Sorcerer's Stone you would be seeking Nuummite. Nuummite doesn't exactly create the Elixir of Life or extend its owners lifespan however it is a very powerful stone that's been around 3 billion years. To find the birth place of this mysterious stone we would have to travel all the way to Greenland to the capital and largest town of Greenland called Nuuk.

Travelling to Nuuk for Nuumite


Nuumite is found in an area slightly north of Nuuk, Greenland - accessible only by boat. The area where Nuumite occurs is in the so-called 'Isuakasia' iron ore region, the origin of which dates back almost four billion years. Nuumite has been used rather widely for untold centuries as beads and ornamental stones. The locality is high in the mountains and requires lugging heavy mining equipment up to retrieve the best specimens. These areas produce some of the oldest stones found on earth, and Nuumite falls in this category. Geologically speaking, nuumite is of volcanic origin and was formed about 3 billion years ago.

Fictional Sorcerer's Stone or Philosopher's Stone

For centuries, the most sought-after goal in alchemy was to turn metal into pure gold and also to achieve immortality. With such mythology you can see why it was of great importance and inspiration for the works of J.K. Rowling in the Harry Potter series.

According to legend, the 13th-century scientist and philosopher Albertus Magnus is said to have discovered the philosopher's stone and passed it to his pupil, Thomas Aquinas, shortly before his death circa 1280. Magnus does not confirm he discovered the stone in his writings, but he did record that he witnessed the creation of gold by "transmutation". Commons. "Philosopher's stone." Wikipedia.

Nuummite has been called the Sorcerer's Stone or Magician's Stone because of its potent vibrations and also being one of the oldest at 3 billions years old but only recently discovered in 1982. While it is still unclear how it got it's nickname the Sorcerer's stone. Some say it is because of its ability for helping with Shamanic journeying, awakening your Earth Star Chakra and awakening your intuitive abilities. Because it is tied to Earth more strongly than any other element this stone may help you connect with any Psychic ability you may possess.
