The shungite stone, also known as the “miracle stone”, is mined from its only known source near Karelia, Russia. Shungite is a very unique mineral containing as much as 99% carbon and special molecules known as fullerenes.
The fullerene molecules that make up a portion of shungite’s chemical properties were first discovered by scientists in 1996 who won the Nobel Prize for their work on this subject.
The importance of fullerenes from a wellness perspective are that they are extraordinary medical grade antioxidants. Other purpoted benefits of wearing, carrying or being near shungite include emotional and physical detoxification, clearing negative energy from one’s space and aura and as a stress and anxiety reliever.
Perhaps the most important use of shungite is as a neutralizer against unnatural EMF signals coming from omnipresent technology such as wifi, cell phones and computers.
