Shungite from Karelia, Russia
What type of Shungite do you sell?
We only sell Type II / Petrovsky Shungite. It is polished, but it can also non-polished for a different style / preference. Type II is also the easiest to shape as it is 50 - 80% Carbon. YES, Shungite is mostly carbon based.
We have made a personal connection with an amazing Shungite supplier in Karelia, Russia.
He only mines from 'The Zazhoginsky Deposit' - one of the only and largest mine of Shungite in the world!
What are the veins on the Shungite?
The "veins" that run through Shungite is Pyrite streaks and is natural and each piece can have a individual pattern.
This is one of the easiest ways to tell if your Shungite is authentic.
Sometimes Shungite does not have many or any veins, but it is less likely.
Please let us know if you'd prefer your Shungite with a lot of veins / pattern or little to none and we will do
the best to send accordingly.
We only ask, because we typically have more pendants with veins than without.
We think the veins make each pedant have different character and uniqueness, just like all of us!
What is the black dust / residue from?
As Shungite is a natural material that has a high amount of carbon content,
some black residue may come off onto your hands when being handled.
It can also occur if you wash your hands while wearing your bracelet, showering, swimming, even just sweating or your natural ones. It is NOTHING to be worried about!
This carbon dust typically happens with our Necklaces, and Bracelets - during the shaping process and post production.
This is absolutely normal and natural, it can be a great way to verify your products authenticity.
To get rid of the black residue you can wash your hands and Shungite items carefully under warm running water.
What is REALLY inside of Shungite?
Shungite is MOSTLY carbon based, but what about that other 20 - 50% of micro- and macro elements? It can be elements such as sulfur, barium, boron, vanadium, molybdenum, nickel, strontium, lead, zinc, copper; oxides of magnesium, silicon, calcium, aluminium, titanium, iron, phosphorus, manganese.
How does Shungite reduce EMFs (Electro Magnetic Frequencies)?
Shungite is believed to have the ability to neutralize and absorb dangerous frequencies from EMF radiation. The reason that Shungite is able to do this is due to the fullerenes inside.
Nearly NO other material in the world contain these fullerenes, which are hollow, pure carbon, molecules. These unique molecules are what scientists believe give shungite the ability to block EMF radiation. In 1996 the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded when it was discovered that Shungite had the properties of Fullerenes. Shungite has the rare molecular formations of C60, Carbon Fullerenes. This is what helps reduce EMFs.
