The shungite or shungite is a black and light stone composed essentially of organic carbon (more than 98%). It comes from a deposit near the village of Shunga, in the Karelia region (Russia) and is known for its many properties. It is considered one of the oldest minerals on Earth and is the only one that contains fullerenes or fullerenes, a type of molecular form of carbon discovered in 1985 and highlighted in the scientific world for its chemical, physical and aesthetic characteristics, and in the based on new nanotechnology and medicine studies.

It is considered that while crystallized shungite contains approximately 80% fullerenes, uncrystallized shungite contains 30% of them. With what the natural crystal of shungite is usually the most requested option for therapeutic use.

Deposits: Carelia region (Russia).


The shungite neutralizes part of the electromagnetic fields produced by the electrical devices that surround us, acting as a shield, and in this way it also helps to strengthen and stabilize the body's energy. It is used for cleaning and protection, to discharge and cleanse the body of static electricity, as well as to calm pain and regenerate the body.

Benefits have also been seen in water treatment thanks to its anti-bacterial properties. It favors the purification of water and the sanitation of the earth from chemical residues, acting as a fertilizer thanks to its content in trace elements.
