This is a powerful and ancient stone that originates from Russia and has been known as a great purification and healing stone. The energy of Shungite is so vast that it can help to break down the negative energy of an entire room while it is also used for protection against electromagnetic forces. A lot of people prefer to keep this stone close to their bodies or near electrical devices as it creates a shield, removing impurities on every level and infusing it with its potent healing vibrations. Shungite has been used since the 18th century for its purification properties, especially for water. Working from the Root Chakra upwards it physically removes toxins from your body, so can sometimes be uncomfortable to work with. The name comes from an 1879 term that was used to describe mineraloids with more than 98% carbon. It is no surprise then, that this stone is jet black. Shungite improves mental clarity and purifies our emotions and intentions so whether you need daily purification, or you’re looking for an emotional detox from heavy energy, this crystal will help you and act as a support system.
