Shungite is a black, lustrous, non-crystalline mineraloid consisting of up to 98 weight percent of carbon. It was first described from a deposit near Shunga village, in Karelia, Russia, from where it gets its name.
Shungite has been used in medical treatment since the early 18th-century. Peter the Great set up Russia's first spa in Karelia to make use of the water purifying properties of Shungite, which he had himself experienced. He also instigated its use in providing purified water for the Russian army. The anti-bacterial properties of Shungite have been confirmed by modern testing.

Shungite clears the energies of the entire body and opens one to receive spiritual Light. Shungite operates vibrationally on the molecular level, freeing the atoms of one’s body from their bondage to negative patterns and energies.
Shungite can clear the body of dysfunctional patterns manifesting as disease, emotional difficulties or various types of negativity. Shungite aids ungrounded people to better connect with the Earth. It provides an aura of psychic protection, primarily because of the energetic alignment it facilitates.
Shungite is a stone of truth; under its influence, one cannot act or speak falsely without becoming very uncomfortable. This is because Shungite dispels negativity and brings in so much spiritual Light that one immediately feels the unpleasant sensation of disharmony if a negative or false thought or statement is introduced. The clearing influence of Shungite tends to dispel one’s selfharming or self-defeating habitual patterns. On an emotional level, it is excellent for letting go of deep-seated feelings of fear, guilt or shame.
