Science & Origin of Shungite

Shungite is a carbon-based stone that was first discovered in the Shun’ga Village in Karelia Republic (northern Region of Russia). Named after the village in which it was discovered, this mineraloid was first described in 1879 and contains more than 98% Carbon. Although primarily found in Russia, Shungite has also been found in Austria, the Congo, India, and the United States.

Noble Science Prize

In 1996 the Nobel Peace Prize for science was awarded to three scientists that found naturally occurring antioxidants within Shungite. These new forms of the element carbon, are known as “fullerenes” and have been used in scientific breakthroughs ever since. Peter the Great knew of Shungite’s healing capabilities and set up the first Russian spa near the deposit, to make use of its water purifying abilities. Peter even insisted that his soldiers carry a piece of Shungite with them to purify their water on the go.

Noble Shungite

A more pure form of Shungite called Noble Shungite, or Elite Shungite is extremely rare and has a silver-ish tint on its surface. The pure stone’s rarity makes it expensive and also very challenging to get your hands on. Its physical structure is almost completely Carbon, leading to fewer impurities of other elements. Shungite has vast amounts of healing powers that can assist any person in need. Shungite naturally has electrical conducting properties that help inhibit electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic fields, which contain trace amounts of radiation, are produced by all common household electronics. Placing Shungite at the base of the electronic and on the back of your phone will help drastically reduce the radial output without interfering with the operations.

Meaning & Energy

Using Shungite has multiple effects on the body, including activation of all 7 main chakras. It’s used to detoxify the body and rid the mind of negativity while contributing as an aura cleanser. Shungite is a must-have for people with difficult and uncontrollable emotions. It allows for light to fill the body and negativity to be removed. Due to Shungite’s large deposits, the world is able to see many forms of Shungite. Wearing any piece of jewelry or having any form of it on you will greatly increase your protective shield. Shungite’s deep rooting capability will house sacred energies that can be easily summoned for shielding of any kind.

Shungite can also be used to make many elixirs. One very common Elixir would be soaking the stone in water for a brief period of time allowing it to purify. Drinking the purified water is beneficial to cell growth and assisting in the detoxification of our body. Please note, not all Shungite can be properly used for consumption and it’s best to only purchase specific “drink-safe” Shungite products.
