Shungite, a humble working stone
Updated: Jan 13
Shungite is soft black stone made up of mostly carbon and has historically been used to purify water. It has been found to contain trace elements of fullerenes which is a form of carbon that is believed to be an antioxidant and is often used as a lubricant or delivery system.
Shungite is one of those stones that is not much to look at (no bling here!) but from an energetic perspective it is excellent for protection and clearing away unwanted energies. This can be useful when clearing crystals or protecting your home. It has been said that placing a piece of Shungite above doors and windows will distract unwanted intruders from entry.
Its electrical properties assist with absorbing and redirecting EMF (electromagnetic frequencies) that are generated by electronic devices and power lines. EMFs can be disruptive to the body and it is believed that EMFs can cause hypersensitivity. This can lead to anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Try placing Shungite on your night stand to assist with sleep. It can be placed on or near your electrical box, television, microwave, computer, cellphone, or in your car. It can also be worn or carried as a pocket stone as a traveling companion.
Because Shungite’s absorbs energies it requires frequent clearing. If you are using it in your house, consider placing a piece of Shungite in a small bowl of sea salt to assist with keeping it clear. This is also an attractive way to display your humble working stone.

Grounding, purifying, restores vitality, eliminates/absorbs all that imposes a hazard on living things, concentrates/restores all that is health, shield from harmful EMFs, relieves headaches/backaches/ rheumatis, normalizes sleep, stabilize blood pressure.
