Shungite is known as the miracle stone and highly prized for its healing properties. Its name is derived from the village of Shung’ga, where it was first discovered. Formed about 2 million years ago, in a large area of the Karelia Republic in Russia, it is a noncrystalline carbon with a metastable structure incapable of graphitization. It is basically an older version of coal, which was created naturally only 300- 500 million years ago. Shungite was created through the slow process of petrification, the environmental conditions surrounding it created natural fullerenes, which are hollow crystalline formations of carbon molecules. This is the only known natural source of c60 and c70 fullerenes, this quality alone, making it a miracle in itself, and they are currently of great scientific interest because of their ability to purify water, act as powerful antioxidants, and being a possible treatment for cancer. Shungite is rated a 3.5 on the Mohs hardness scale and while it is mostly carbon, according to Judy Hall in Crystal Bible 3, “Shungite contains virtually all the minerals in the periodic table.” she goes further, stating that “it may have been instrumental in creating life on earth.” This beautiful stone can bring forth positive blessings and positive results, helping you know what is healthy and beneficial for a better and healthier life, as well as keeping you positively grounded to the earth. It is also being studied for use in everything from a superconductor for electricity, to rocket fuel propulsion, and even in nanotechnology, this incredible mineral could very well change the future of the earth as we know it, and even our ability to reside elsewhere, potentially taking us beyond the reaches of our atmosphere.
There are 3 known types of Shungite:
Containing between 30-50% carbon, and being solid black in color, this form of shungite is commonly used for statues, figurines, spheres, and jewelry. It is much easier to shape, and much less likely to chip or crack while carving or break while being worn. This shungite is not used to purify water, due to its low carbon content, but it still carries many energetic properties and is a good blocker of EMF.
This stone was named after the Russian Emperor, Peter the Great, and is made of 50-75% organic carbon. Unlike elite shungite, this variation of the stone can be cut or polished, giving it an intense shine. This stone is frequently used to fabricate objects, and is often tumbled into pocket sized carrying stones or palm stones. Not near as dark in appearance as black shungite, but having more intense energetic properties, only when tumbled, it can be used as purifier of water, but it will take longer than elite shungite. Since the carbon content is lower, other minerals such as pyrite can be present that can get into your water in its raw form.
Elite, Noble, or Royal Shungite:
Elite shungite is a black, glass-like mineral that reflects silver. It contains over 90% organic carbon, and in its purest forms, can contain over 95%. It accounts for approximately 1% of the shungite found on earth. This form of shungite is by far the most powerful in its energetic signature and its healing properties, and is the most effective form to be used in the purifications of water. It is rare, fragile, and difficult to shape, which is why it is not polished or cut and almost always found in its original form.
Shungite for Cleaning Water:
Access to clean water is a problem as old as civilization, in fact, some cultures would just resort to drinking mead or wine instead. The most common way to purify water has always been to boil it. This method can kill bacteria and make water safe to drink, but inorganic compounds can survive the boiling process, and many of the organic compounds that are not only healthy, but important, can be lost in this age old purification method. So the process of making water palatable, also renders it essentially useless for the human body, making it very important, especially during child development, to drink the “right” type of water. Another method commonly used to this day is to apply chlorine. Again, this method will kill bacteria, disinfecting the water and making it “safe” to ingest, but recent science has proven that chemical compounds like chlorine can be harmful to the human body, and can even produce organic materials that can lead to the formation of cancer causing cells. Perhaps the safest and most effective way of cleansing your water is with exposure to shungite. This stone has the ability to clean water from almost all of the organic compounds, as well as pesticides, metals, bacteria, and microorganisms, without even having to boil it, while leaving the important components that humans require to live healthy lives. The powers of shungite for the cleaning and purification of water started commercially in the 90’s, leading to many experiments and studies to determine its effectiveness. During these experiments, water contaminated with various bacteria was found to be cleaned and safe for consumption after only 30 minutes of interaction with the miracle stone. Shungite cleans water with various chlorine compounds, nitrates, copper, magnesium, and iron. It can clear visually dirty water, even eliminating the sour taste, all while enriching this clean drinking water with potassium. Shungite water is also recommended for the treatment of various illnesses and conditions including but not limited to allergies, asthma, disease of the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and cardiovascular system. It can also treat impotence, diabetes, the common cold, and even chronic fatigue. So this powerful stone not only makes the water ultra clean and safe to drink, but can help the water to become a biologically active, colloidal solution of hydrated fullerenes, aidin in your hydration, as well as a myriad of issues, presented by mother nature and today's world of stress and toxins.
Shungite for EMF:
All modern technology, whether functioning wirelessly or running on AC power, emits EMF radiation, and each passing year, we are surrounded by more and more of it. The addition of cell phones, mobile pcs, wifi, and 5g are making our world a fast paced, interactive network of signals connecting and crossing everywhere we turn. If you want to use and enjoy modern technology, or live near people who do, you cannot avoid exposure to EMF radiation. Emitting EMF is how these devices work, therefore, if you block all of the EMF they will not function, this is because EMF is not a byproduct, it IS the product. There are no safe levels of EMF radiation, and the tech companies and products that create it are expanding and progressing every day. Fortunately, there is a lot of science that shows that a very effective way of combating this, and limiting your exposure, is through the use of shungite. This ancient stone has the ability to absorb and completely neutralize the dangerous frequencies of EMF radiation. The key to this process is in the fullerenes it contains. The scientists who discovered them won a Nobel Prize in the late 90’s, and before this discovery their existence in nature had not been proven. Almost no other materials in the world contain these fullerenes, which are hollow, pure carbon molecules. Shungite and its high concentration of them, grants it the power to eradicate the harmful cancer causing radiation that is plaguing the modern world. Having shungite on or near devices has been proven time and time again to drastically reduce the concentration of EMF in the surrounding areas. Shungite pyramids placed near a constant source of the radiation will absorb it from the surrounding air. Plates of many sizes are available that can be placed on or stuck to devices of any size to keep the radiation contained, stick one of these to your laptop, cell phone, or tablet to prevent the harmful effects from leaving the electronics. Shungite necklaces or earrings can be worn, or it can even be carried in the pocket when away from home to protect from the EMF that exists everywhere, clearing the aura of the wearer, and keeping you safe from today's busy, radiated world. This is a stone that we should all have on or around us at all times.
For most, holding a piece of shungite for the first time brings a wave of cleansing that washes over the entire body, clearing its energies from head to toe, opening one to receive the spiritual light. It seems like many stones work on a cellular or etheric level, where this crystal seems to work on the molecular level, freeing the atoms themselves from the bonds of negative energies and patterns that don't serve them. This sensation can be a pretty intense experience, this material works to cleanse and align all of the particles in the body so that they are open and able to facilitate the rapid union with the light. When properly aligned, the atoms and molecules of the material body form an exoskeleton for the light body to exist within. For most, the physical body is not able to truly align, whether this is being blocked by negative habits, disharmonies, or contradictions being carried. This means one's frequencies are not able to match those of the spiritual light, inhibiting the light body from being able to fully manifest. Facilitating this process is the highest purpose of shungite, and it takes time, but working with this powerful stone can greatly accelerate this development. Working with this rock can also clear the body of disease, dysfunctional patterns, and various types of negativity. Aiding in one's ability to remain grounded, and balanced, shungite can help the user to better connect with the earth, providing an aura of psychic protection due to the energetic alignment it facilitates. This is a stone of truth, under the influence of shungite, acting or speaking falsely will become very uncomfortable. This is due to the dispelling of negativity and the spiritual light that is being brought in, causing an instant feeling of disharmony if negative, erroneous, or dishonest thoughts are introduced. The clearing influence of this mineral is known to dispel any self harming or self defeating habits, and is excellent for letting go of deep seated feelings of fear, guilt, or shame on an emotional level. Carving shungite into different shapes can help to aid in targeting different areas of the body, and creating different effects with its energy. Pyramids placed on the body will mirror the shape and energy of the stone into the body, targeting specific areas to be aligned, altered, or grounded. Placing a pyramid on any of the chakras can help to cleanse and recenter it, allowing smooth and efficient energy transfer along the spine. Spheres can be effective tools for evenly dispersing the clear, powerful, positive vibrations that shungite has to offer, while dispelling any negative energies from the space, and keeping you firmly rooted to the earth, as it provides protection from unwanted or unneeded thoughts or ideas. Wands can be used to target specific areas and direct energy through the body. Tumbled stones are great as well. They can be easily made into jewelry, or carried to provide protection while one is on the move. Keeping a piece of shungite in the pocket while going about one's day will keep aura, thoughts, and spiritual body in good, clear working order while performing constand work on the physical body at the same time.
Shungite is a powerful and useful tool in almost every way that a crystal can be. Any one of its many incredible properties make it a must have for everyone's collection, but the combination of effects shungite can have on your life is truly remarkable. It grounds us in a way that most have never experienced who haven't worked with it, helping us to maintain and heighten our connection with the earth, keeping us in a constant state of balance, and truth. By simply carrying this mineral, we are shielded from the radiation that has plagued the earth since the inception and implementation of the electronic technology that defines today's world. When it comes to shaping it, the possibilities are endless, it can be stuck to a device we need to protect ourselves from, as well as be shaped into beautiful and ornate carvings that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are effective, creating even more of a sense of positivity than the properties themselves. It has been used for centuries for its ability to provide the clean drinking water that is vital to our survival, without the use of filters, chemicals, or flame. To think that this stone could have been a part of the creation and formation of life on earth, and also has the ability to sustain this life by providing us with our most prized and necessary resource, is truly mind boggling. Shungite or “the miracle stone” will change your existence, and set you on the path of centeredness, propelling you into a perpetual state of growth, and help you attain and then maintain your true self, this is a one you don't want to miss out on.
