One of the most powerful “crystal” allies to belong in the rockhound’s metaphysical tool kit, Shungite is an ancient healing crystal that has been used for purification in its native Russia for generations. Shungite is not a crystal at all, in fact, but a carbon-based rock that originates in a village called Shun’ga, in the Karelia region of Russia – hence its name. People in this village have used Shungite to purify their drinking water since its discovery, and it remains still one of the most highly regarded, and powerful, purification and protection stones known to humankind. Studies have since shown that it physically rids the body of pollutants, bacteria and viruses, and was used in Ancient Rome to purify drinking water (but please see my disclaimer at the bottom of every listing regarding health concerns and the use of crystals for healing purposes).
Geologists have found that true shungite is around 2 BILLION years old. It has exceptionally high carbon levels, so some scientists believe it was formed due to a biological process of decomposing microscopic organisms in Earth’s ancient oceans.
Metaphysically, Shungite is hands-down one of the absolute BEST negativity busters in the mineral world. It drives away dark forces, negative entities, and banishes evil and fear. It absorbs and sheilds the body from electromagnetic emissions, or electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) given off by our devices, electronics, microwaves, computers, even kitchen and household appliances. Shungite is a powerful aid to relieve nightmares, and eliminates the suffering from scary or anxiety-produced dreams. Negativity and evil cannot sustain itself in the presecence of shungite.
But buyer beware: you must purchase shungite from a trusted seller and knowledgeable vendor. Trust your seller, ASK QUESTIONS, and always follow your instinct; shungite has a very distinct and powerful vibration unlike anything else.
Because this is such a hardworking stone ally, cleanse your shungite regularly using sustainably harvested white sage, selenite, moonlight, spring water, or palo santo smoke or spray (available in the shop!).
This listing is for ONE 100% natural, authentic Shungite carved heart. Each piece measures approximately 2.5 inches.
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered thousands of years in the earth and I cannot guarantee them completely. They are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
