Shungite has been used since the 18th century for its amazing purification properties, especially for its ability to purify water and remove microbials.
One of the best things about Shungite is the presence of fullerenes – a molecule which, when entering the body, is a very powerful and long-acting antioxidant with an ability to fight free radicals.
Physically, it helps remove toxins from the body, supporting the immune and lymphatic systems. Because of its high quantity of hydrogen, Shungite has been used for centuries to effectively purify drinking and bathing water.
Spiritually, Shungite helps clear and reinvigorate the chakras, extending through the energy body, from the Root Chakra upwards. With its grounding and protective energies, Shungite is incredibly powerful for emotional, mental and spiritual purification, while also offering improved mental clarity.
Shungite can offer some protection against outside forces, such as electromagnetic fields, so wearing shungite jewellery or keeping it close by as you work on your computer could prove beneficial.
The antioxidant-like quality of this powerful stone not only acts as a detoxifier for your physical body, but can also detoxify your soul, helping remove toxic energy so you feel your absolute best, spiritually. Use shungite to cleanse during times when you need to release dull, stagnant energy from your system.
