Quick History of Shungite

Shungite was formed billions of years ago in the Paleoproterozoic Era. It is only found one place in the world, Russia, where it extends over a vast 3,000+ square mile area. It was first described from an ancient deposit near Shunga village, in Karelia, Russia, from where it gets its name.

Shungite contains trace amounts of fullerenes. Fullerenes (also known as buckyballs) are molecules composed entirely of carbon, in the form of a hollow sphere, ellipsoid, or tube. All carbon, which Shungite is 98% carbon, was stardust at one point. So, it shouldn’t be surprising that fullerenes were recently found in young planetary nebulas as well as clouds of cosmic dust surrounding distant stars.

It should also be noted that Shungite is the only known natural source of fullerenes on Earth. With all of this information, it is likely that Shungite was born in outer space and landed on our planet (probably in the form of a meteor) billions of years ago. This gives Shungite unique healing properties unlike any other mineral in its class.

Shungite has been used as a folk medical treatment since the early 18th century. Peter the Great set up Russia's first spa in Karelia to make use of the water purifying properties of Shungite, which he had himself experienced. He also instigated its use in providing purified water for the Russian army. The anti-bacterial properties of Shungite have since been confirmed by modern testing.

We have Shungite in essences, elixirs, and lotions, so you too can use this ancient healing mineral. You can keep reading more below to learn more about Shungite's healing properties.

Healing Uses of Shungite

Shungite with its natural inclusion of fullerenes acts on a systemic level. They act as an adaptogen, operating both at the cellular level and at the level of the whole human body.

"An adaptogen is a botanical that greatly improves your body's ability to adapt to stress, whether it's a hectic schedule, heat or cold, noise, high altitudes or any number of other stressors. This elite class of herbs impart strength, energy, stamina, endurance, and improve mental clarity." —Chris Kilham, The Medicine Hunter

Adaptogens are herbal pharmaceuticals. They work to counteract the effects of stress in the body. Stress causes very real physical changes in the body, including harming the neurological, endocrine, and immune systems. Adaptogens have stimulant properties that help counteract those harmful effects.

Place a Shungite pyramid near all electronic devices—such as your television, computer, microwaves, radio receivers, wi-fi hot spots, etc. to neutralize any EMFs.

One of the most beneficial uses of the Shungite metaphysical properties is to protect against electrical magnetic fields, also known as EMFs. We are constantly surrounded by technology—cell phones, computers, televisions, Wi-Fi and the list goes on and on. Each of these radiate man-made, EMFs. Many people experience EMF sensitivity, and EMFs have been linked to constriction of blood flow to major organs, poor digestion, and immune systems, increased blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar, arthritis, anxiety, and depression. Apple even has a disclaimer encouraging you to not hold your phone directly to your head. Fortunately, there is protection from EMFs.

In layman terms, Shungite has a reputation of being able to absorb and neutralize these frequencies due to its components on a molecular level. It is the only natural material in existence to have the presence of hollow molecular carbon cages, known as fullerenes, embedded within this mineral, which allows it to neutralize the EMFs. The scientists who discovered fullerenes won a Noble Prize in Chemistry in 1996. The natural existence of fullerenes remained unclear until it was verified in deposits of Shungite. YES! Finally! It’s true! The science and the crystal worlds have finally come together. The bottom line is that using Shungite is something you can do now to assist with the vast EMF issue in our world.

The first step to introducing Shungite into your life is to place it next to your phone outlets or in rooms with lots of electronics. Place a piece of Shungite on the back of your cell phone and on top of your electronics. We have Shungite Pyramids that you can even keep on the dashboard of your car. With so many studies backing its EMF protection, we’ve already covered our office and homes with it.

Uses of Shungite by Type

Uses of the Natural Chips

Our favorite use for the Shungite Natural Chips is on indoor plants for increasing the vitality of the plant. The crushed stone is used both for water drainage and for the fertilization of indoor plants. You only need about 20 grams (0.7 ounces) of crushed Shungite for 1 kg (2.2 pounds) of soil. Watch for the increase in luster which indicates that the plant is healthier in general and has increased vitality. This packet will be enough to add to 3 lbs of potting soil.

 

Use of the Pyramids

Pyramids are, in general, very much appreciated for the beauty of their form and for the power they release. A pyramid emits its own form wave that carries the Shungite influence quite a distance. These pyramids will emit a wave approximately 8 feet from the base. Use them to guard against electromagnetic effects in a square or rectangle area like a work desk.

 

Uses of the Spheres

Spheres emit a more uniform and harmonious emanation and are ideal for living rooms and bedrooms. This sphere is good out to about 8 feet. Spheres have a harmonizing power over our energetic body because this form is in resonance with the shape of our vital field. Small spheres of Shungite are often used for relaxation and meditation or paired with other stones as harmonizers.

To use for relaxation, two spheres work best. Place one to your left and one to your right. They need not be too close but should be about the same distance from you. Now sit relaxed or lay down between them. Imagine the harmonizing power of the Shungite as a wave flowing slowly from each sphere. They overlap and cancel each other out where you are sitting or lying. The effect is almost dreamy.

 

Uses of the Cubes

The cube form is in resonance with the Earth and with the first Chakra, which reinforces Shungite's properties of rootedness. Their power is said to be less than a pyramid of the same size. These are attuned to the Base Chakra and are used in balance of that Chakra in particular.

To balance the Base Chakra with a Shungite cube, you do not have to place the cube on the Chakra at all. The effects are good out to about 5 feet with a 1.25-inch cube. The effect can be quite pronounced as it provides a calming, grounding feeling.

 

Uses of the Disks and Small Rectangles

These are used for electromagnetic localized protection. In the case of pulsed electromagnetic waves (Wi-Fi, cordless phones, and cell phones) the corrected influence emanates with the same strength as the original, harmful source but in a biocompatible and positive way when the Shungite disk or plate is present.

We suggest using a round Shungite Electronic Sticker or rectangular Shungite Electronic Sticker on your cell phone or other electronic devices. You can also use a Shungite Magnet on metal surfaces such as a refrigerator or filing cabinet to reap the same rewards for up to a 5-foot radius.

 

Uses of the Jewelry

Besdies being beautiful and quite eye-catching, the Shungite Pendant and Shungite Bracelet also provide powerful healing benefits. They both will offer a calming, grounding energy. They will help combat stress, anxiety, and depression. They keep the aura clear of negative energy and the Chakras clear and balanced. You can meditate while wearing the jewelry for adding benefits.

 

Uses the Palm Stones

Shungite has three primary uses: protection from harmful electromagnetic radiation, bringing a calming influence, relaxation of the mind and spirit, and, in combination with certain crystals, balancing Chakras. While the palms stones can be used for all three purposes, they are particularly good for balancing Chakras. Palm stones sit easily on the body near Chakra locations. They are smooth and easily handled. They are easy to clean and easy to use.

We recommend a set of one or two palm stones to combine with other tumbled stones and small crystals in healing layouts as follows:

  • Base Chakra: Shungite and Red Jasper
  • Sacral Chakra: Shungite and Carnelian
  • Solar Plexus: Chakra Shungite and Yellow Jasper or Tiger's eye
  • Heart Chakra: Shungite and Green Aventurine, Jade, or Rose Quartz
  • Throat Chakra: Shungite and Blue Calcite or Blue Chalcedony
  • Third Eye Chakra: Shungite and Clear Quartz or Lapis Lazuli
  • Crown Chakra: Shungite and Amethyst

Shungite for Chakra Balancing

Shungite is one of the most powerful minerals to realign the Chakras and optimize the vital field. In particular, Shungite greatly increases the vital field in the Base Chakra. While Shungite aids each Chakra individually and as a whole, it seems to have the most powerful effect of the Base Chakra, Sacral Chakra, and Solar Plexus Chakra. It is believed to support physical and emotional balance and increase mental clarity. It is also said to remove negative and destructive thoughts as well as fix spiritual imbalances.

 

The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head and is our gateway to the expanded universe beyond our bodies. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It is the fountainhead of our beliefs and the source of our spirituality. It connects us to the higher planes of existence and is the source of universal energy and truth. When the Crown is in balance, our energies are in balance. We know our place in the universe and see things as they are. We are unruffled by setbacks, knowing they are an essential part of life.

You can balance your Crown Chakra easily and effectively with our Shungite Aromatherapy Products! In our Shungite Crown Chakra Aromatherapy Crystal Candle, we use Shungite and Amethyst crystals as well as Lavender essential oil. In our Shungite Crown Chakra Crystal Air Freshener and Shungite Crown Chakra Crystal Aromatherapy Diffuser Set you'll find Blue Lotus Amber and Lavender essential oils and pure premium Shungite and Amethyst essences.

 

The Third Eye Chakra is our true inner self, our consciousness. It is the center of perception and command and directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world. It balances the important and the unimportant, sorting meaning from data and impressions and commands the energy flow within the body. When the Third Eye chakra is in balance we can clearly see and understand the things around us.

You can balance your Third Eye Chakra easily and effectively with our Shungite Aromatherapy Products! In our Shungite Third Eye Chakra Aromatherapy Crystal Candle, we use Shungite and Clear Quartz crystals as well as Juniper essential oil. In our Shungite Third Eye Chakra Crystal Air Freshener and Shungite Third Eye Chakra Crystal Aromatherapy Diffuser Set you'll find Wild Poppy and Lavender essential oils and pure premium Shungite and Clear Quartz essences.

 

The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. In balance, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. When the Throat chakra is in balance and open, we can bring our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release.

You can balance your Throat Chakra easily and effectively with our Shungite Aromatherapy Products! In our Shungite Throat Chakra Aromatherapy Crystal Candle, we use Shungite and Blue Chalcedony crystals as well as Sandalwood essential oil.

The Heart Chakra is located near the center of the breastbone, it regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment. When the heart chakra is out of balance you may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become critical of the little foibles of others. You may well find yourself having inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday external stimuli. When this chakra is balanced, we understand our own needs and emotions clearly. We can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes.

You can balance your Heart Chakra easily and effectively with our Shungite Aromatherapy Products! In our Shungite Heart Chakra Aromatherapy Crystal Candle, we use Shungite and Green Aventurine crystals as well as Rose essential oil. In our Shungite Heart Chakra Crystal Air Freshener we use Jasmine and Sage essential oils and pure premium Shungite and Malachite essences. While in our Shungite Heart Chakra Crystal Aromatherapy Diffuser Set you'll find Jasmine and Sage essential oils and pure premium Shungite and Green Aventurine essences.

 

The Solar Plexus Chakra is the energy distribution center and the chakra of relationships. This chakra is located between the rib cage and navel and controls the immune and digestive systems. When the solar plexus is out of balance spiritually you will feel fear: fear of the displeasure of others, and disappointing others, or fear of subordinating your life and pleasures to the will of others. When in balance, you have the strength to fight infections, are free of allergic reactions, and are able to use the nutrients you ingest. It also allows you the freedom to interpret the world through your own thoughts and emotions and not live in fear of violating the dictums of others.

You can balance your Solar Plexus Chakra easily and effectively with our Shungite Aromatherapy Products! In our Shungite Solar Plexus Chakra Aromatherapy Crystal Candle, we use Shungite and Yellow Jasper crystals as well as Peppermint and Eucalyptus essential oils. In our Shungite Solar Plexus Chakra Crystal Air Freshener we use Mandarin Orange and Lilly of the Valley essential oils and pure premium Shungite and Red Jasper essences. While in our Shungite Solar Plexus Chakra Crystal Aromatherapy Diffuser Set you'll find Mandarin Orange and Lilly of the Valley essential oils and pure premium Shungite and Yellow Jasper essences.

 

The Sacral Chakra, located below the navel and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It controls the flow of energy and is the center of gravity of the body. It is the center of the Life Force of the body and controls the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body. Gut feelings, intuition, and other "non-linear" communication come from this chakra. When it is out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as confusion, over dependency on others, repression of feelings, inability to feel joy, fear of sensuality or sex, and frustration. When it is in balance you have grace, feel pleasure in life, find you are flexible and can "go with the flow" and do so in good spirit.

You can balance your Sacral Chakra easily and effectively with our Shungite Aromatherapy Products! In our Shungite Sacral Chakra Aromatherapy Crystal Candle, we use Shungite and Carnelian crystals as well as Jasmine essential oil. In our Shungite Sacral Chakra Crystal Air Freshener and Shungite Sacral Chakra Crystal Aromatherapy Diffuser Set you'll find Patchouli and Sandalwood Vanilla essential oils and pure premium Shungite and Carnelian essences.

 

The Base Chakra located at the base of the spine, and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When physically out of balance the symptoms manifest themselves as lethargy, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation. When spiritual energies are out of balance, one may feel flighty, disconnected from reality or distant. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical body regains its strength and stamina, and the spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one’s own power. It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership.

You can balance your Base Chakra easily and effectively with our Shungite Aromatherapy Products! In our Shungite Base Chakra Aromatherapy Crystal Candle, we use Shungite and Red Jasper crystals as well as Rosemary essential oil. In our Shungite Base Chakra Crystal Air Freshener and Shungite Base Chakra Crystal Aromatherapy Diffuser Set you'll find Patchouli and Clove essential oils and pure premium Shungite and Red Jasper essences.
