While not a crystal, shungite is an one of the strongest mineral healers. It is the only mineral that has been scientifically proven to possess “fullerenes,” molecules with powerful healing qualities. With a Mohs score of 4, it is a fairly dense rock. It’s real strength comes when tested by fire. Shungite’s ability to withstand fire and keep from melting has given it the classification of a pyrobitumen. Shungite’s surface luster ranges from semi-metallic, to matte black. Inside, shungite is a noncystaline carbon mineraloid.
Shungite healing properties span the board from purity to protection. Shungite has electricity conducting properties. These shungite properties are also known to aid in the inhibiting of EMFs, or electromagnetic fields, that are the result of electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic fields are created by electronic devices. Common electronic items such as laptops, cell phones, computers and tablets all put out EMFs. Placing shungite at the base of a computer, microwave or around your various home electronic devices will not interfere with their operations, but will block out some of their free radial output. It’s also used an elixer. Shungite elixers can be made by simply placing the mineral in water, and allowing it a short time to purify. Drinking this purified water is said to have many beneficial qualities such as an increased rate of healing and cell growth, and detoxification of the body. Holding and meditating amplifies the shungite healing properties of headaches, back pain, blood pressure, inflammation and muscle pain. The antioxidants in shungite are forceful impacters on health and a fully functioning immune system. Shungite healing properties are powerful for the spirit as well.
