SHUNGITE, Elite/Noble (Republic of Karelia) is believed to be around 2 billion years old, and is a very powerful, ancient healing stone that detoxifies your body by absorbing and eliminating any negative or health hazardous energies. Shungite can be used for EMF (electro-magnetic field) protection, purification of the body, general healing and well-being. There are two main types of shungite on the market: elite/noble shungite and regular shungite. The main difference between them is the amount of organic carbon the stones contain. Rare elite/noble shungite includes over 90% of purest carbon and have more powerful healing energy. The high percentage of carbon makes elite/nobel crystals rarest, but extremely fragile, making it hard to be shaped or polished. Therefore, elite/noble shungite specimens are usually sold in their unique natural shape. Chakras: Root. Element: Earth.
