Shungite is a black stone made mostly of carbon, the same element that forms both graphite and diamonds. Its high percent carbon content is what gives it its distinctive light-sucking black colour. It was discovered in the Russian village of Shunga, hence the name.
In general, there are three types of Shungite and they are known as regular, petrovsky and elite. The latter is also known as noble shungite. The difference between them relates to the amount of carbon present. Elite shungite contains the most carbon with a share of up to 98%. Up next is petrovsky with up to 75% with regular with the lowest carbon share at 35%.
The healing properties of Shungite are becoming ever-popular across the world. It’s mostly used in purification, grounding, healing, and protection. For example, shungite pendants, bracelets and earrings can neutralise the effects EMF radiation and not allow its harmful rays to attack the soft tissue in the human body.
Shungite also encourages the growth of good cells in the body, as well as enhancing the functionality within the brain. It works on the cerebral part of your brain by helping the production of endorphins enabling the body to calm itself and relax even in the most stressful of situations. The emotional part of our brain can also be affected by the effects of fullerenes in shungite. However, it is said that if an individual in an emotive state doesn’t make a conscious effort to relax, then the shungite elements will have no marked effect on that part of the human body.
The best way to use shungite is to wear it on your person for that ultimate protection and experience. It honestly doesn’t matter too much how often you wear it. You put your item of choice on at your own convenience but the more you have it on, the better things will be. Shungite pendants are always a classic, but shungite earrings and shungite bracelets work just as well.
All three major types of shungite can be used for water purification. Shungite purified water can help in the adjusting of your DNA making it stronger, and more resilient to disease. In short, Shungite mixed with water balances and cleanses the human body. It also helps to improve the elasticity of a person’s skin.
Shungite and related products can be used for any of the above purposes alone or in combination, depending on your precise needs. It can also amplify your general psychic power, which means that it can be used in conjunction with other stones or magical objects in order to strengthen them.
In Russia, shungite has a long history. The famous czar, Peter the Great, who once ruled Russia was known to have a preference for drinking water infused with shungite minerals. This is believed to have been the main factor that led to his frequent travels to the Karelia region where Shunga is located. Today, shungite has also been found and mined in other parts of Russia, most notably near Lake Onega. The high temperatures of these sites seems to contribute to the purity of the shungite.
Please note that Shungite should never be used as a replacement for professional medical care. It is proven that if used correctly, it can be highly beneficial in improving your general wellness.
