Our Elite Shungite (approx. 98% Carbon) is selected as stable, solid crystals and is sourced directly from the Shungite mine in Shunga. We are extremely selective in choosing stable crystals. We are also looking for the finest energetic properties and geological structure. Pieces exhibiting natural smooth, flat edges with more cuboid shape, are considered, geologically, the highest quality.
Only 1% of all Shungite found is Elite. It is a non-crystaline, semi-metallic mineraloid, made up of 98% carbon and is the most powerful and effective of the Shungite Grades. Due to its extreme brittleness, Elite Shungite is extremely difficult to polish and therefore nearly all Shungite of this grade is only available in rough form.
Shungite is a powerful protection stone, offering psychic protection as well as protecting one from all forms of negativity. It infuses ones auric field with light, allowing only positive and beneficial energy to reach one. It is also a strong grounding stone, encouraging one to reach one's full potential and helping one to follow one's true path while staying focused, grounded and centred at all times. It helps one to live life to the full and it is believed that it may assist with neutralising the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields.
