SHUNGITE, Regular (Russia), believed to be around 2 billion years old, 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. There are two main types of shungite on the market: regular shungite and elite/noble shungite. The main difference between them is the amount of organic carbon the stones contain. While rare elite shungite includes over 90% of purest carbon and has more powerful healing energy, it is an extremely fragile type of shungite. Regular shungite is able to be shaped or polished. Chakras: Root. Element: Earth.
