Shungite is a rare black stone made of up to 99 percent carbon. It’s mainly found in Shunga, a village in Karelia, Russia. The stone has a unique composition. It contains fullerenes, or 3-D spherical molecules made of 60 carbon atoms. These molecules are hollow and sometimes called buckyballs. Along with fullerenes, shungite consists of nearly all the minerals on the periodic table. The origin of shungite is a mystery. Typically, materials made of carbon come from decayed organic substances like old forests. But the stone is thought to be at least 2 billion years old. This is before organic life existed on the planet.

Users of shungite say the stone has the ability to shield you from EMF emissions. Many people refer to an old 2003 study, where shungite reportedly protected rats against electromagnetic irradiation. Yet, the study is outdated and only involves animals. This phenomenon has some support theoretically, but more research is needed to see if there’s any benefit for humans.

Metaphysical Healing Properties Of Shungite, Touted as the Miracle Stone of the 21st Century, Shungite is now the go-to stone for electromagnetic field (EMF) protection, purification and detoxification of the body, as well as general healing and emotional well being. But what is Shungite, exactly? And what are the benefits of shungite? While not a crystal, it is one of the strongest mineral healers because the Shungite properties span the board from purity to protection, offering a variety of benefits to anyone who works with this powerful stone. Although the most popular use of the shungite stone is for electronics, the healing potential of this stone goes far beyond protection from technology and can be used as part of crystal body layouts, crystal elixirs, meditations, and more.

Shungite works to cleanse and align all the particles in the body so that they are open and in alignment with the light. It carries strong purifying, cleansing and detoxifying properties. It can be used to clear your body of any dysfunctional patterns, which in turn can manifest as negativity, emotional difficulties or even certain diseases. Place a couple Shungite stones on an affected area and you will see an accelerated resolution of the problem. If you are looking for a more full body healing, instead of concentrating on a particular area, simply hold or meditate with the stones. Shungite crystals are also very beneficial for relieving stress and anxiety, soothing insomnia and boosting your overall energy level.

Metaphysical Healing Properties Of Shungite, Many people, especially in Russia where the use of Shungite originated, place this stone or pieces in their drinking water because of its documented health benefits. They are essentially making their own gem essence with Shungite. Shungite placed in water most of the time, as it holds powerful detoxification and purification energies. If you do try this technique, note that there will be some black residue in your water due to the carbon structure of this stone.

Shungite is said to infuse the auric field with light, and it allows only positive and beneficial energy to reach you. Its ancient energy also provides psychic protection. It has been said that it has the ability to cure many health problems, in particular skin complaints, and water infused with it may be used to cleanse problem areas. Shungite has been found to aid balancing and healing by absorbing negative energy output. It aids the body in its healing and helps restore emotional balance.

The Shungite meaning ranges from spiritual and emotional purification to protection, which makes it one of the most adaptable and powerful stones out there. Whether you’re looking for an energetic shield to minimize the effects of EMFs and technology, or you’re looking for an emotional detox from heavy energy, this carbon-based stone holds the energy you need to support your intention.

Metaphysical Healing Properties Of Shungite, It is a stone that has a strong earth connection, and its ancient heritage means that it brings the ancient earth mystical energy into play. Like most black stones, this is a strong stone to aid you with grounding. It is a stone for the base chakra and it is a strong stone for spiritual grounding. Shungite is a stone to help one find peace in surroundings as well as within. To find the good in all and to see benefit and beauty in the smallest of thing’s that the being so often misses within a single blink of the eye.

As with any crystal or stone of power, you can use Shungite in a variety of different ways. It’s quite common for people to simply leave the stones around their house.

Some of the prime locations include next to the bed, near the front door, and any other entrances/exits, in the sitting room (particularly on a fireplace if you have one), and burying one in your garden will help set a perimeter of energy filtration.

Of course, you won’t always be in your house so how can you take the stone’s properties with you? One of the simplest answers would be jewelry. Many people will turn the stone into a necklace or bracelet so that they can experience its benefits throughout the day. The one problem with that is that it can be quite brittle.
