What is Shungite?

Shungite is a specific type of black rock known to contain non-crystal carbon, which is considered to be one of the oldest forms of carbon known to man. The non-crystal carbon was discovered in a village known as Shunga in the Karelian shore of Lake Onega in the North West of Russia.

Shungite rocks contain trace amounts of fullerenes, which are molecules that contain carbon atoms. Fullerene was the third type of carbon to be discovered after diamond and graphite allotropic.

The carbon content for Shungite stone is 30-50% for regular Shungite and 90 to 98% for elite Shungite.

The benefits of Shungite

Using Shungite jewellery can help protect you from the harmful emissions of microwaves, smart televisions, cell phones, smart meters, and even from outside radiation from power lines and cell phone masts.

Shungite pyramids and spheres are also popular for their ability to shield against EMF pollution and are well placed next to wi-fi routers, televisions, computers and other EMF hotspots in your house.

With that said, Shungite stone has the ability to get rid of the negative frequency found in electromagnetic fields, thus preventing it from getting into your body’s soft tissues. In addition, Shungite can also store an electric current, but it does not create magnetic fields.
