Shungite is technically not a crystal but a mineraloid (like Amber, Opal or Obsidian) due to it’s structure. But that doesn’t make it any less powerful! Used for centuries, Shungite has long been considered a stone for healing, with Peter the Great of Russia using it in his spa to purify water. Northwest Russia is actually where the largest and oldest source of Shungite lies, with other deposits reported in Austria, India, Kazakhstan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Shungite is typically black, but can range to a deep bronze colour. It’s opaque, but can have a shiny quality, making it look lustrous and metallic. The highest quality, or “Elite Shungite” is made up of at least 90% carbon, shiny in appearance, and recovered manually as opposed to through industrial mining. “Regular Shungite” is industrially mined, matte black in colour and 30-50% carbon.
