Although it only exists in Russia, it is possible to find different qualities of Shungite that vary according to the percentage of carbon. The more carbon Shungite has in its composition, the more its quality increases, making it more valuable. Shungite Elite is characterized by its strong and shiny grey and has 98% carbon, making it the highest quality Shungite. Black, dull Shungite appears with only 30% carbon.
Why is this mineral so rare? Because in addition to only existing in one place on the planet, this form of carbon does not exist in anything else in nature.
Shungite is a mineral with unique energetic qualities as well as a multitude of fantastic characteristics. Shungite purifies and protects, as well as promotes recovery and growth in living organisms. It blocks what affects us and brings more vitality.
The origin of this crystal remains a mystery. Some say it arose 2 billion years ago, formed in oceans of ancient times from microorganisms that no longer inhabit our planet. And there is also the theory that this crystal arrived on our planet in a meteorite and maybe for that reason it is only found in one place – Karelia in Russia.
Shungite absorbs energies that may be life threatening and restores what is beneficial. Also known as the "Stone of Life" for its energetic properties, many people use it to create a healing space, placing it in water to purify.
Shungite is a mineral to keep for example near computers, mobile phones, internet routers as well as televisions or microwaves, as it absorbs the magnetic energy emitted by these devices. So, this shungite pyramide is ideal for placing next to your mobile phone while you are working.

How to clean: Placing the shungite to rest in the earth is a good option. In the same way smoking is also an option. In addition, it can also be wet, so cleaning it in the running water of a river or sea is an excellent choice.
