Shungite is around 2 billion years old but it was only discovered in the 1800's.  It is an extraordinarily positive stone as it is one of the only known natural material known to contain fullerenes, which are powerful anti-oxidants.

The energy embodied within this ancient stone is said to absorb and eliminate anything that is a health hazard to human life, and it has active metaphysical properties with strong healing powers. Fullerenes were brought to our attention when research on them gained the scientists a Nobel prize.  Use Shungite for EMF protection and grounding. Scientific research and experiments have shown that placing Shungite close to your cell phone, laptops, computers and other electronic sources, significantly weakens the impact of electromagnetic radiation on the body. It absorbs and neutralizes the harmful effects of EMFS, which affect energetic balance and your health.

In addition to EMF protection, use Shungite for purification and detoxification of the mind, body, spirit. Working with it grounds your root chakra to create a more stable and balanced foundation.
