Shungite is a rare black stone made of up to 99 percent carbon. It’s mainly found in Shunga, a village in Karelia, Russia. This stone has a unique composition. It contains fullerenes, or 3-D spherical molecules made of 60 carbon atoms.
The origin of shungite is a mystery. Some theories of shungite’s origins include:
- a large meteorite collided into Earth and deposited shungite into the ground
- shungite formed due to microorganisms in nearby water
- the composition of organic matter in sedimentary rocks changed over time
Although scientists are unsure of how shungite was formed or where it came from, they attribute the stone’s potential benefits to its fullerene content.
The shungite stone has the ability to shield you from EMF emissions. It is known ot purify water, kill bateria and reduce inflammation.
Today, this is still one of my favorite stones to always have on me!
