Shungite stone

Shungite stone,

When we talk about the properties of shungite stone it is worth noting that, surprisingly, it is a mineral that has not yet gained the same popularity in the crystal healing community as stones of a similar dark luster, such as black tourmaline.

Shungite stone properties

Although shungite is not a crystal, it is one of the strongest healing minerals. It is the only mineral that has been scientifically proven to possess “fullerenes,” molecules with powerful healing qualities.

With a Mohs score of 4, shungite is a fairly dense rock. Its true strength appears when tested with fire. The ability to resist fire and prevent melting has given it the classification of pyrobitumen. The surface luster varies from semi-metallic to matte black.

Inside, shungite is a non-crystalline carbon minerosteroid.

Importance of shungite stone

These stones have been found mainly in Russia. The meaning “shungit” comes from the village of Shunga, in Karelia (Russia), where it was first discovered. Their history begins about 2 billion years ago, in the Paleoproterozoic era.

Precambrian rocks were some of the earliest oil reservoirs on Earth. Shallow, brackish lagoons near volcanic chains in western Russia were filled with sediments and algae. These specimens contributed to oil shale and crude oil deposits.

Later, when these deposits were subjected to heat and pressure, shungite became an almost pure form of carbon. However, carbon purity is not the only quality of this mineral. In 1992, the discovery of fullerenes surprised the mineral world.


Fullerenes are carbon molecules that have formed into hollow globular molecules.

In Russia, this shungite stone has long been used as a water purifier. Peter the Great established the first Russian spa, called Martial Waters, in Karelia, where people could bathe in spring water purified by this mineral through which it flows.

Today, many Russians still use it as a water purifier.

Healing properties of Shungite stone

Shungite has healing properties ranging from purity to protection. It has electrically conductive properties. They help inhibit electromagnetic fields, or electromagnetic fields, which are the result of electromagnetic radiation.

Electromagnetic fields are created by electronic devices. All common electronic devices, such as laptops, cell phones, computers and tablets, emit electromagnetic fields.

Placing one or more shungite stones at the base of a computer, microwave, or around your various household electronics will not interfere with their operation, but will block some of their free radiation emission.

It is also used for beverages

Shungite elixirs can be made by simply placing the mineral in water and allowing it to purify for a short period.

By drinking this purified water with the shungite you will gain many beneficial qualities, such as an increase in the rate of healing and cell growth and detoxification of the body.

Holding and meditating amplifies the healing properties of shungite for headaches, back pain, blood pressure, inflammation and muscle pain. The antioxidants in this mineral are powerful in health and a fully functional immune system.

The healing properties are also powerful for the spirit. It can be used to combat insomnia, increase energy, reduce stress and relieve anxiety.

Shungite Mantras for Meditation

Block the continuation of negative patterns by meditating with shungite.

Start by holding the Shungite stone in your hands in a quiet, comfortable space in your home. If you are in an area where you are distressed, hold the Shungite stone in that area.

If you want a general calming effect, simply hold it in your hands. It is most closely associated with the root or base chakra. It carries the energy of the earth.

Healing with Shungite provides an extreme shield of protection, plus it penetrates to the core of your being to provide a sense of calm and earthy stability.

Likewise, the properties of shungite purify water and healing is believed to purify the soul as well.

If you feel that toxic thoughts and emotions are affecting your body, or if you have unhealthy cycles that prevent you from progressing in your life, try adding a mantra to your shungite meditation. The Shungit mantra, “my mind is pure, my spirit is clear,” can help relieve agitation.

In shungit meditation, when you say these words, try first to eliminate all thoughts, concentrating only on the words you are saying. Feel your spaciousness by breathing in the purifying air around you and expel any poisonous grudges, guilt, negativity, or emotions you may be holding on to.
