only found in the Karelia region of Russia, SHUNGITE is finding many uses among holistic practitioners AND ENERGY WORKERS WORLDWIDE. The story of shungite is quite interesting, to find out more read on:
In recent years, Shungite has become a popular stone among healers, holistic practitioners and energy workers. While this black stone has only entered the consciousness of the West in the past decade, it has long been known in Russia for its healing properties.
Located in the Karelia Region of Russia bordering Finland, the origin of the Shungite deposit is uncertain, but many scientists theorize it could be the remains of ancient life, similar to oil or coal deposits, remnants of primitive micro-organisms from the primordial sea.
There are other theories that point to a volcanic origin, and there may even be an extraterrestrial origin from a comet or exploded planetoid. Whatever its true origin, no other deposit of Shungite is known to exist outside of Russia. Locals in the region have long noted that the waters of Lake Onega, which sits directly on the Shungite deposit, can be safely imbibed straight from the lake without boiling or extra preparation.
Perhaps the most famous story related to shungite can be found in the Great Northern War between Russia and Sweden (1700-1721). Tsar Peter The Great supplied each of his Russian soldiers with a piece of shungite to put in their canteens. This became a key factor in defeating the Swedish army during the Battle of Poltova (1709) when dystentery broke out and the Swedes, lacking Shungite, were overrun by the Russians who had potable water cleansed by this magical black stone.
Shungite not only has a unique origin, it is composed of a rare type of carbon known as Carbon-60, which is shaped like a soccer ball. The Carbon-60 molecule is also known as a fullerene or 'Bucky Ball', a term coined by American inventor Buckminster Fuller. This unique soccer ball molecule contains a void which can absorb and remove toxins from biological systems. It also has energetic properties which can balance and harmonize electromagnetic fields, imparting a healing effect on the human body. Carbon-60 is only found naturally in one location, the Shunga deposit in Karelia, hence the name 'Shungite'.
GRADES OF SHUNGITE
The majority of Shungite is composed of 30-70% carbon-60, and considered lower grade. It varies in appearance from matte black colored chips to polished stones that have a nice reflective sheen to them. While these stones are lower grade, they are still quite strong energetically and have the added benefit of being easily carved and shaped into spheres, pyramids, or other geometric shapes and sizes. This lower grade shungite stone is called Class 2 or Class 3 shungite.
Only 1% or less of the entire Shungite deposit contains 98% or greater Carbon-60 and is considered Noble or Elite Shungite. This high grade Shungite has a silvery metallic appearance. Elite Shungite is much stronger than lower grade shungite, and is also excellent for making shungite water in a short amount of time.
One application of Shungite which I enjoy is making Shungite water, a powerful anti-oxidant and cleansing health drink. After shungite stones soak in a container of water for a short amount of time, the solution becomes bio-active and can be used to treat illnesses, to heal skin problems, or simply to maintain good health.
Russian studies have shown shungite water to normalize cellular metabolism, increase enzymatic activity, and aid in regeneration and rapid healing. The applications of shungite water are many as it can be used internally, topically, and can even be used for our animal friends and watering plants. I drink shungite water daily, and have replaced the common carbon filter with a glass container filled with shungite chips.
Shungite has a strong grounding property common with black stones, in that it blocks and neutralizes harmful electromagnetic fields, but Shungite also has a unique 'up' energy that balances and harmonizes the human body. Many intuitives including myself feel a buzzing energy when holding shungite stones.
In experimenting with different shapes, I found shungite spheres to be especially pleasing, perhaps due to the soccer ball shape of the Carbon-60 molecule being mirrored on the micro and macro scale. A 60mm spheroid such as the one above was confirmed to be very strong with muscle testing, and I place several of these around my living space.
Another great way to enjoy this miracle stone are shungite pendants. Wearing a piece of shungite in your energetic field helps shield the body from WiFi, cell phone and other EMF pollution. Some people like to fix small pieces of shungite on their wireless devices and laptops for the same reason. We suggest using a shungite pendant in conjunction with a shungite sphere or orgonite pyramid at your home or office for extra protection.
While Shungite is over 2 Billion years old, the healing properties of this unique stone have just begun to reach the West in the last decade. I highly suggest that you experiment for yourself and see what experiences you have with shungite. Its becoming more common to see Shungite at holistic events, and its also one of the best stones to use in Orgone Energy Pyramids.
I have shungite in my shop here:
