Shungite Benefits: The Healing Power of Shungite

Heather Askinosie|July 26, 2019

With the amount of time we are all spending in doors, there’s no escaping technology. From watching TV and browsing the web to talking on the phone and texting, we’re on our devices more than ever before. During a time when our health is of the utmost importance, it’s important to consider the role that technology plays in how we feel. 

That’s why now is the perfect time to bring in the power of Shungite.

The power of the Shungite benefits lie in what makes it unique. Touted as the Miracle Stone of the 21st Century, Shungite has been around for an estimated 2 billion years, but it wasn’t until the 1996 Nobel Prize winning research that discovered antioxidant fullerenes within the stone, that people began to wake up to the Shungite benefits and healing potential. How could we have overlooked the Shungite meaning for so long?! Now that it’s finally in the spotlight, we can’t get enough.

The hollow fullerenes that make Shungite so remarkable are called “Buckyballs.” They’re molecular formations specific to Carbon, like that in the noncrystalline carbon mineraloid, that is Shungite. Just as Carbon has been used within water filters for centuries, so, too, does Shungite possess this purifying property. In fact, that’s how the Shungite benefits received its first bit of notoriety. Although Shungite has been used for physical purification and detoxification, its healing properties go deeper into the emotional and spiritual realms, allowing anyone who works with Shungite to cleanse their energy field of harmful or unwanted energies.

Besides the detoxifying and purifying effect it can have on the mind, body and spirit, the Shungite healing properties are also known to minimize the effect of EMFs, or electric and magnetic fields, emitted by your electronics. What makes Shungite truly unique is the way in which it neutralizes the harmful energies emitted by these devices to protect your energy. 

Placing a Shungite pyramid at the base of a computer, T.V., or around your various home electronic devices will not interfere with their operations, but it will minimize the harmful effects of their EMFs.

The constant transmission of EMFs can have a significant impact on your energy and overall health, which is why it is time to start implementing the powerful healing and protective elements found in Shungite to each part of your daily routine. Even in the comfort of your own home, and pretty much wherever you go, the effects of modern technology surround you. For someone in need of a digital cleanse from common electronic items, this simple 3-step practice with Shungite has a powerful combination of energy tools to help you minimize and detox from the effects of EMFs. This practice uses a combination of three Shungite-based products that have the ability to protect you from the effects of your technological devices, as well as those that surround you. 


Your EMF Protection Practice:

  1. Place the Shungite for Your Cell Phone on your phone to minimize EMFs from your phone.
  2. Wear the Digital Detox Bracelet on your left hand to protect yourself from EMFs as you move throughout the world.
  3. Place your Shungite Pyramid by your laptop or desktop to minimize EMFs from your computer.

The cell phone, which is one of the most commonly used technological devices, is constantly emitting EMFs that are detrimental to your energy and health. The Shungite for Your Cell Phone sticks to your device to neutralize the negative EMFs emitted by your phone, preventing them from making as significant of an impact. The Digital Detox Bracelet is to be placed on your left wrist to shield your energy from surrounding EMFs. By wearing this Shungite bracelet on the daily, you can ensure some energetic protection, no matter where you are. It is especially powerful if you wear a smartwatch, because the Digital Detox Bracelet neutralizes the EMFs emitted by your smartwatch before they negatively impact your energy! Last but not least, the Shungite Pyramid can be placed on either your desktop or laptop to neutralize the EMFs that these devices emit. We’re all surrounded by electronics inside and outside of the home—maybe even more than we’d like—but with an added Shungite shield, you can lessen the impact that your devices have on your energy! 

In addition to setting up your space and your energy with the protection of a Shungite stone, incorporating the Shungite healing properties into your bath and body care routine can take your energy work to the next level. Pair the Detox Crystal Bath Bomb and the Detox Crystal Scrub, both infused with the energy of Shungite among other stones and essential oils, to create a nighttime practice to detox your mind, body and spirit from the energy of the day.

A Daily Detox Crystal Practice: 

  1. At the end of the day, drop the Detox Crystal Bath Bomb into your bathtub. If you don’t have a soaking tub, use a foot soak to get the benefits of this crystal-infused bath! 
  2. Use the Detox Crystal Scrub on your hands or all over your body to scrub off any negative or harmful energy you’ve accumulated throughout the day. 

5 Must-Have Shungite Products:

  1. Shungite Bath & Shower Kit: Due to the presence of natural fullerenes in Shungite, this black stone carries strong purifying, detoxifying and cleansing properties. Taking a Shungite bath sucks the negativity, toxins and electromagnetic energy from your body to physically and digitally detoxify you! Hang this kit from your shower head or empty it into a bath for detoxification. 
  2. Shungite Tile: Unlike the average tile, this polished piece of Shungite will furnish your space with its detoxifying energy. Create a practice of placing your phone or tablets atop this shungite tile during meal time or at night to give yourself a little digital detox each day.
  3. Shungite Cell Phone Holder: Scientific research and experiments have shown that placing Shungite close to your cell phone and other electronic devices significantly weakens the impact of electromagnetic radiation on the body. Whether you are at work or at home, when your cell phone is not in use, place it in the Shungite Cell Phone Holder to block out the EMFs.
  4. Shungite Stone: Are you constantly out and about? As an initial step for integrating Shungite into your life, we recommend placing Shungite in your pocket, bags, or any other items that travel with you for EMF protection. It will help to neutralize the harmful effects of the electromagnetic waves surrounding you that are detrimental to your energetic balance and health while on the go.
  5. Shungite for Your Cell Phone: In today’s electronic based world, our love for our cell phones have become an indispensable part of our daily lives, making the Shungite for Cell Phone that much more important. The human bio-field has an electromagnetic nature, and cell phone radiation is said to suppress the bio-field and interrupt the natural energetic flow within your body. Place this heart shaped piece of Shungite on your cell phone to minimize EMFs emitted from your device. 

Other Shungite Essentials 

Along with the popular cell phone holder for hands-free use and other must-haves, here are additional Shungite products we recommend incorporating into your crystal healing program. 

  • Shungite Pyramid 

Another way to access the cleansing and protective Shungite benefits is by placing a crystal pyramid next to electronic devices like phones, iPads, laptops, and TVs. One of the most popular items at Energy Muse, the pyramid shape not only has a beautiful structure but is also considered a sacred geometrical shape. Representing stability in its foundation and focus in its point, the pyramid is a powerful way to bring the Shungite healing properties into your space. While the Shungite healing properties constantly absorb harmful EMFs from electronic devices, this beautiful crystal pyramid also adds an elegant touch to any home decor. 

The Shungite benefits are powerful on their own, but you can boost the clearing and protective effects with crystal combinations. Whatever your workspace setup, this crystal kit helps you optimize the energy of your office area. Along with bringing in the Shungite healing properties with a crystal pyramid, the Amethyst cluster provides support of your intuition with peaceful vibes while the Lapis Lazuli tumbled stone encourages effective communication. This set of crystals also includes Pyrite as a wealth and abundance magnet and Black Tourmaline for an extra dose of clearing and protection. 

How to Use Shungite

If you’ve been wondering what Shungite is used for, its healing properties can be incorporated into many different aspects of your life. Here are additional healing techniques you can use to connect with the Shungite benefits. With an intention of energetic cleansing and protection, these methods are wonderful tools for bringing your chakras back into alignment. When you are grounded with the Shungite stone benefits, you will be able to deepen your awareness of the present moment and live a fuller, more enriching life. 

Shungite and Selenite Protection Grid 

A protection grid using Shungite and Selenite is a powerful and effective way to cleanse the root chakra, allowing you to deepen your level of grounding and protection. A daily grounding and cleansing session with this crystal combination is a wonderful addition to your wellness routine, especially since screen time on various devices has become a part of daily life for many. With a Shungite and Selenite protection grid, you can balance and harmonize your energetic field and protect against electromagnetic radiation. When you practice this daily, you'll see significant results like better sleep and stress relief. Place a Shungite stone in each corner of the room and Selenite cleansing wands near the doorway. The Shungite works in synergy with the Selenite by creating a protective shield against any toxic energy; then the Selenite fills these cleared spaces with the purest white light, giving you a deeper level of energetic cleansing and protection. This protection grid can be used in hotel rooms or vacation homes for on-the-go energetic clearing that helps remove any lingering energy from previous travelers.


Its detoxifying and grounding energy also makes Shungite a powerful stone to use in meditation. Meditation with Shungite benefits your performance by helping you to focus. Through reducing stress and relieving anxiety, Shungite can calm the mind of worry flurries, and give it the clarity needed for productive work. It also significantly enhances energy, which you can direct toward grounded concentration and a more positive outlook. Shungite rejuvenates and balances the spirit.

Whether you’re wearing it or meditating with it, the Shungite benefits work with your root chakra to support and raise your entire spiritual being from the ground up. This provides balance between the left and right sides of the body, and harmony between chakras. As a neutralizer, it will also block out the negative energy that comes from outside sources. People who act as energy vampires, draining you of your life zest, won’t have that effect when you are wearing Shungite. The energy is so strong, it counteracts their vibes with equally powerful positivity to neutralize their influence on your energy. Combine it with another stone to amplify the desired effect.

If you're looking to cut energy vampires out of your life, enhance creativity or bring abundance into your business, you can use crystals specific to those goals in tandem with Shungite for added efficacy and protection in the process. Shungite benefits are all about taking things to the next level. Working with it allows you the opportunity to invest in yourself and ask what it is that you’d like to enhance. With this miracle stone in hand, the possibilities are limitless.
