Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furiends

Welcome to another week at BBHQ, today we're continuing our crystal journey and this time, we've got a lovely gemstone to share as Penny asked us; what is Shungite good for? 

Crystal of The Week


What is Shungite good for?

Shungite is a solid black crystal, it only comes in black and the polished stone has a satin finish. It is approximately 2 billion years old, so way older than the dinosaurs, how about that! It is 98% carbon and contains trace amounts of fullerenes, which we'll talk about below. The polished stones are usually supurr smooth and very tactile. Although it looks like coal unpolished, it is actually much, much stronger, and it's only found in one mine in a remote region of Russia, Karelia.

At BBHQ we have a few tumble stones which live in front of the computer monitors, and others are dotted around the house near electrical items, and we'll tell mew why in a moment.

Here's a little bit about the gem lore regarding this intriguing crystal. Shungite contains fullerenes which supposedly are amazing antioxidants that can attract and neutralise harmful EMF's aka electromagnetic frequencies, like wifi or just the normal electromagnetic frequencies emitted by power lines, the wiring in your home, cell phones, or TV's etc... Shungite apparently absorbs these negative frequencies/energies which can attack our DNA, hence the reason we keep ours next to the computer and other electrical items.

Wearing a piece of Shungite as a pendant or bracelet is said to create a natural forcefield around your body to help protect mew from daily EMF radiation, which is everywhere, and it assists in blocking free radicals. 

Shungite is also said to help with transformational energies, so if mew feel like mew need a bit of detox whether from devices or emotional issues, this might be a stone to explore further.  It is a very grounding stone, so if mew're feeling like mew need more structure in your life, this could help according to the books we've read.

The ideal placement for Shungite is on the Root Chakra, but as we said, it can be worn anywhere on the body for pawsitive effect.

There's so much information about this crystal, far too much for our small post today, check it out on google and mew'll find a wealth of stuff including Shungite water, although we've never tried that at BBHQ.

It is not an expensive crystal and comes in all shapes and sizes. Next time the P.A. is at the gem show she's going to get a pyramid-shaped one to add to the collection. We even have little charms on a couple of our collars.

If mew're looking for more EMF protection, we share another interesting item with mew next time.

Many thanks for DMing us Penny, and we hope that answered your question.

 If mew have any crystal questions; email us, DM us or ask us in the comments below.

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in

    I'm going to download your coloring with cats books. Awesome.

  4. That is very interesting. I googled shungite and was surprised how affordable it is. I think a pyramid and some tumble stones will be on my to buy list.

  5. I have never heard of shungite. I think I will get some for people for Christmas now that I know what they do. Very pretty mandala. XO
