Shungite Shape Characteristics

Gem therapists understand that many stones can have increased benefits when worked into complementary shapes. As these are natural stones, the value they add can vary slightly based on the natural composition of the material.

It is thought that these shapes carry the therapeutic effects of the stone through form waves, a subtle emanation of matter. Each object emits its own unique waves based on its form and the vibratory signature of the material used.

Pyramids

One of the most powerful shapes, shungite pyramids are appreciated for their strong form waves, meaning they carry the influence of shungite over a greater distance. They are preferred for high-activity areas such as office spaces. However, they might be less useful in areas of relaxation, such as the bedroom, due to the nature of their form waves.

Sakkara Pyramids

These pyramids draw their inspiration from the Ancient Egyptian necropolis of Saqqara. Specifically, the influence for this design comes from the famous Pyramid of Djoser. It is the oldest known stone structure in existence. Shungite Sakkara pyrarmids capture this ancient and inspiring design.

Spheres

Appreciated for their uniform emanations and harmonious form waves, spheres are preferred for areas of rest, such as living rooms and bedrooms. Use in areas where mediation or relaxation should occur. Shungite spheres are popular for pairing with other stone shapes as harmonizers to balance energies.

Cubes

Known for their connection to the earth and their grounding power, shungite cubes also activate the first chakra, enhancing this power of stabilization. Its area of effect is less than that of a pyramid or sphere, but is better for those in need of grounding. Good for those needing to study or concentrate on mental tasks.

Eggs

As a symbol of fertility and new beginnings, an egg shaped shungite is excellent for harmonization, perhaps even more so than a sphere. It is believed to connect those within its influence to life in all forms; not just the physical, but also the spiritual.

Merkaba

Shungite Merkaba.

A mystic symbol, Merkaba (“vehicle of light”) is formed of two intersecting tetrahedrons. One points to the Heavens, and the other to Earth. Some may also see this as the male and female.

Within Merkaba, the Platonic solids can be found. According to ancient texts, these are the sacred geometric shapes that form our world.

Spinning in opposite directions, it is said to create a three-dimensional energy field. Practitioners believe that meditation and breathing techniques can activate shungite Merkaba, aiding one’s journey into higher states of consciousness and self-discovery.
