Shungite was formed billions of years ago in the Paleoproterozoic Era. It is only found in 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.
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.
SHUNGITE JEWELLERY BENEFITS
Besides being beautiful and quite eye-catching, Shungite Bracelets also provide powerful healing benefits. They 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 jewellery for adding benefits.
SHUNGITE METAPHYSICAL PROPERTIES
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 for 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.
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.
