Shungite is an earthing crystal that’s full of a crystalline form of carbon healing molecules called fullerenes which are the most powerful antioxidants known to us. It is both protective and detoxifying and improves immune system function. The fullerenes in shungite act as an adaptogen at a cellular and whole body level, their antioxidant properties reduce the actions of free radicals, they have been shown to last longer and are stronger than many other antioxidants. Other energy qualities are increasing mental clarity, harmonising energies and eliminating imbalances. It protects the human bio field, it removes the unhealthy elements of electromagnetic waveforms such as EMF’s from cellphones & wifi. It has so many uses in the home including creating an energy shield by placing it in the corners of a room or of your entire home. A piece by your cell phone charging point and on or under your wifi box are important as they are direct sources of harmful waveforms. I also love a piece by my front door to cleanse energies as they enter my home. Spiritually its a tool of transformation that acts as a catalyst for growth and positive change. It’s a powerful grounding, centring and protective stone. Elite Shungite (type 1) is 98% high fullerene carbon and accounts for only 1% of the volume of shungite available. It is silvery in colour difficult to shape. Black shungite (type 2) is 60-70% high fullerene carbon, this is easier to shape and polish. There is also grey shungite which is 30% carbon which I do not have in my store.
