Every few months, new studies emerge that increase our concerns about the damage electropollution does to our bodies. Be it cell phones, computers, cordless phones, or other Wi-Fi devices, this news feels like a never-ending trickle of doom and gloom. Electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) have been connected to brain cancer, inflammation, fatigue, DNA damage, premature aging, impaired thyroid functions, reproductive abnormalities, and a barrage of other health struggles. Every day, more and more people are searching for ways to engage in EMF protection. In a sense, EMF protection is becoming more vital.

Well, how about some good news for a change? A stone called shungite shows great promise in helping protect us from EMFs.

If you’ve never heard of shungite, you’re not alone! It may be the world’s best-kept secret, as well as the oldest. Said to be about two billion years old, shungite can tell us plenty about the early earth.

About Shungite

Found in the Karelia region of Russia near the Shun’ga village, shungite is a black, lustrous mineral made of more than 98% carbon. With color ranging from satin matte black through a gleaming metallic silver, varying levels of carbon are responsible for giving shungite its fascinating range of color.

Grades of Shungite

  • Type I grade, known as silver shungite, is composed of about 90 to 98-percent carbon and has a high luster and brilliant finish. It is the rarest and most valuable color of shungite, as less than one percent of collected material is this color. Silver shungite may also be known as elite shungite or noble shungite.
  • Type II shungite is known as black shungite. It is the most commonly available shungite and contains 50 to 70-percent carbon. Black shungite is famous for a variety of purposes beyond jewelry. Shungite carvings, like shungite spheres or shungite pyramids, are frequently crafted from this material. Black shungite may also be known as Petrovsky shungite, named for Peter the Great, who helped popularize its use.
  • Type III shungite, also known as gray shungite, has a carbon content of 30 to 50-percent. Often known as shungite rock, it’s commonly used for lapidary work.

Over the centuries, shungite has been said to cure, rescue, purify, heal, protect, normalize, restore, and even stimulate the growth of the wearer. In Russia, there are even healing rooms entirely made of shungite!

No wonder shungite is attaining a reputation as a miracle stone of the 21st century!

What Makes Shungite So Special? 

It’s all about its unique structure consisting of fullerenes, which is a crystalline modification of carbon. Fullerenes are among the most powerful antioxidants, shielding cells of our bodies from the effect of free radicals. The spherical molecules of fullerenes in carbon makes it highly useful for people using shungite. Only elite shungite contains small amounts of fullerenes that are believed to be a potent antioxidant and encompasses multitudes of benefits for both health, and nano-technologies.

The group of scientists who discovered fullerenes collectively won a Nobel prize in the late 1990s. Until fullerenes were found in shungite, their existence in nature wasn’t even proven.

Shungite stones can be worn on or close to the body or placed around the home. Believers say this stone shields the wearer from electromagnetic radiation, balances cosmic energies and aids us in attaining a higher state of consciousness.

Shungite Products for EMF Protection

If you purchase a quality shungite product that contains high amounts of carbon and fullerenes, then it’ll be effective at absorbing the radiation. It stands to reason that the more shungite you have around sources of radiation, the better job it is likely to do.

Shungite Pyramid

One of the popular options for EMF protection is a shungite pyramid. These pyramids are made of single, large pieces of shungite. Both the amount of shungite, and shape, is believed to affect the amount of protection provided against electromagnetic radiation. Typically, the larger the pyramid, the further its range of protection is believed to be.

A shungite pyramid would be ideal for putting near a constant source of radiation, like your home router, your laptop, your PC, or your microwave.

The nature of shungite pyramids, while beneficial, are not good for bedroom use.

Shungite Spheres

Shungite spheres or eggs are placed where one lives, it cleanses that environment, filling it with overwhelming positive energy by providing optimism and stability to your living space. They radiate energy in all directions at the same time and are said to have the ability to move energy through time.

Wearing, carrying, or even using a shungite sphere during meditations is believed to balance one’s energy levels and provide the wearer with the stone’s grounding benefits.

Shungite Cubes

Believers say shungite cubes will bring you positive energy, relieve stress, and help you feel happier and healthier throughout the day. Spending time near a shungite cube will contribute to your overall health and wellness.

Shungite cubes can be placed near your working area to enhance your efficiency and improve your performance. Also, you can place them near your bed to guard you against the geopathic zone influence and help you to relax and sleep well.

Secondly, each bead is manually assembled, shaped, and polished for maximum shine.

Wearing elite shungite necklace over heart chakra is said to neutralize EMF radiation and not allow it to enter the soft tissues of the body.

Wearing shungite bracelets are believed to protect the bloodstream and nervous system of the wearer.

Shungite Stones

Shungite gem are said to carry strong purifying, cleansing and detoxifying properties that can be used to clear our bodies of dysfunctional energy patterns, emotional difficulties, or even certain diseases.

Placing a couple of shungite stones on an affected area supposedly induces recovery and speeds up the healing process.

Simply holding a shungite stone in hand during meditation is also believed to be very beneficial for relieving stress, soothing insomnia, and boosting the overall energy level of the wearer. 

With so many beneficial properties going for it, you can understand why shungite is referred to as ‘The Stone of Life.’ It carries ancient energies and has been used for centuries, and yet now it is being utilized in the most modern technological applications. It is timeless, unique, functional, and beautiful!
