The Power of Shungite Metaphysical Properties

Heather Askinosie|September 25, 2014

The power of a Shungite stone is not always readily known in the spiritual community, as it isn’t necessarily one of the most popular healing stones. That being said, their healing powers are extremely beneficial, and everyone should have them in their home. Said to be around 2 billion years old, Shungite is a powerful ancient healing stone that is almost pure carbon, found in the Karelia region of Russia. It is incredibly powerful as it is one of the only known natural materials to contain fullerenes. Fullerenes occur when carbon molecules gather together into hollow, globular molecules. They are currently of great scientific interest to many researchers because of their ability to purify water, act as powerful antioxidants and the possibility of being used as a treatment for cancer.

There is much written testimony that documents the beneficial effects of the shungite metaphysical properties, as it has been used for healing and purification of water in Russia for centuries. Shungite healing stones help with detoxifying and purifying your body by absorbing and eliminating any negative energies or anything that is health hazardous to the body. They infuse your aura with light, allowing only positive and beneficial energies to reach your body. The shungite metaphysical properties bring forth positive blessings and positive results, helping you know what is beneficial for a better and healthier future.

Benefits of the Shungite Metaphysical Properties

A Shungite stone is also a very powerful protection tool, especially useful in protection from EMFs as well as psychic protection. Shungite benefits and healing powers come from its rare, noncrystalline carbon mineral foundation, according to crystal expert Judy Hall.

A key benefit of Shungite is that it works with your root chakra to provide you with a sense of stability. This is essential to your well-being because a blocked root chakra can create ongoing health problems like arthritis and cause you to lose focus or feel ungrounded in your surroundings.

The crystal meaning is commonly known to help individuals ground themselves, find balance and protection, and purify their surroundings. If this sounds like the energy you’re looking for in your life, setting your intentions with this stone will allow you to experience the unique Shungite properties first hand.

Whether you’re looking to purify your surroundings from damaging EMFs or purify your surroundings, you can experience the Shungite healing properties in many different ways.

Every Day Shungite Uses

Utilizing the strength of the powerful Shungite benefits can provide you with a new sense of balance that will positively affect your life. Whether you’re looking to set your intentions with the stone or make an effort to remove harmful toxins from your everyday life, there are easy things you can start doing today to incorporate Shungite into your life.

Here are a few common ways to utilize Shungite healing properties in your everyday life and get the most out of your stones.

Shield EMF

One unique Shungite property is that it can protect from Electromagnetic Fields or “EMFs.” EMF radiates from the technology inside of our homes, such as the microwave, cell phones, washing machines, and more. To counteract the Electromagnetic Fields produced by the technology we use, place a handful of Shungite stones next to your electronics. We recommend using a Shungite pyramid for best results. 

 Fight Digital Pollution 

Some people feel an intense energy pull towards Shungite properties. This might mean that you need an energetic field cleanse. Because there might be toxic digital energies outside of EMFs that may be throwing you off balance, and you don’t even know it. 

To remove the unwanted pollution from your living space, consider carrying Shungite with you in your pocket or purse and leaving it near your desk or bed.

Cleanse and Detoxify

Shungite works to cleanse and align all the particles in the body so that they are open and in alignment with the light. It carries strong purifying, cleansing and detoxifying properties. It can be used to clear your body of any dysfunctional patterns, which in turn can manifest as negativity, emotional difficulties or even certain diseases. Place a couple Shungite stones on an affected area and you will see an accelerated resolution of the problem.

To truly experience the power of Shungite benefits, try wearing our Neutralizer Necklace. This way, you can carry the stone with you everywhere you go and maintain balance. 

Relieve Stress

If you are looking for a more full body healing, instead of concentrating on a particular area, simply hold or meditate with the stones. The Shungite crystals are also very beneficial for relieving stress and anxiety, soothing insomnia and boosting your overall energy level.


If you’re ready to experience the powerful effects of Shungite properties on a spiritual level, you can try meditating with the stones. This is a popular method for anyone who's looking to experience the power of Shungite with their mind, body, and spirit. To do so, place a stone in each hand to balance the left and right sides of your body. 

Purify Your Drinking Water

Many people, especially in Russia where the use of Shungite originated, place Shungite stones or pieces in their drinking water because of its documented health benefits. They are essentially making their own gem essence with Shungite metaphysical properties. Our co-founder Heather actually uses Shungite in her water most of the time, as it holds powerful detoxification and purification energies. If you do try this technique, note that there will be some black residue in your water due to the carbon structure of this stone.

To maintain the powerful energies of the Shungite stone, make sure you recharge them regularly. To do this, all you need to do is run them underwater and then place them out under the sun for two to four hours.

Shungite properties have numerous health and healing benefits, making it an essential stone for your spiritual journey. No matter the Shungite benefit, you’re sure to find a connection to the meaning of the stone that is beneficial to your wellbeing. Through utilizing the stone in your daily life, you’ll hopefully find a sense of clarity. Try using shungite stones, and let us know what your experience with them is!
