Made from authentic Type 1 Elite Shungite, the pendant comes from the Karelia region of Russia, the world's largest and primary deposit of genuine shungite.
Elite Shungite is the rarest and purest form of shungite and contains up to 98% organic carbon. Shungite is one of the only materials in the world to contain hollow, pure carbon molecules known as fullerenes. These unique molecules are what scientists believe give shungite its EMF protection properties as well as other health benefits including reducing oxidative stress, reducing inflammation, purifying water and killing viruses and bacteria.
Each pendant is made from a piece of raw, elite shungite and as such no two pendants are the same.
Shungite is a rare black stone made of more than 98% carbon found in the Republic of Karelia in Russia. Shungite is unique in that it is the only known material to contain fullerenes (sometimes referred to as buckyballs), a microscopic, hollow pure carbon molecule.
The discovery of fullerenes won scientists the Nobel Prize in 1996 and was considered a real breakthrough in nanotechnology. Fullerenes are believed to be an extremely powerful anti-oxidant and are being thoroughly studied for their benefits to health.
Shungite is thought to be at least 2 billion years old, but its origin remains a mystery. There are several beliefs on where shungite came from. The two most popular theories being either an ancient sea or ocean or an ancient meteorite, which might help explain why shungite is almost entirely concentrated in just one area on Earth as well as its high carbon content.

Shungite is typically classifed as follows:
Elite Shungite is the purest and rarest form of shungite and accounts for only 1% of all shungite found. It also contains the highest concentration of fullerenes which is why we have decide to only include Elite Shungite as part of our range.
Shungite has been used for centuries in Russia and Russian scientists have been studying shungite's properties extensively for decades. The full potential and healing benefits of shungite however is relatively new to the rest of the world and research is ongoing to discover its true potential and applications.
Studies to date have shown that shungite is both a natural anti-oxidant and natural anti-inflammatory as well as having anti-microbial properties to kill viruses, bacteria and pathogens. It is thought that the fullerenes, which are carbon nanostructures work by damaging the cell walls of bacteria and viruses.
Shungite is also recognised for its water purification properties and shungite water has long been recommended by naturopaths and natural healers as a treatment for a variety of illnesses including cold and flu, allergies, sore throat, kidney and liver problems, fatigue and much, much more.
Research into the EMF protection properties of shungite are still ongoing but it is thought that the fullerenes in shungite have the ability to attenuate electromagnetic frequencies, transforming or neutralising the man-made EMF.
A 2003 study shows that 'shielding with shungite decreased the severity of damage produced by high-frequency electromagnetic radiation'
Simply place the shungite pendant around your neck and adjust the cord to your desired length. As shungite has such a high carbon content it may leave black marks on your skin or clothes. You can remove this black residue by washing your shungite stone carefully under warm running water. Elite shungite is very fragile so we recommend treating your shungite pendant with care.
You can also place your shungite pendant in a bag or pocket.
It is recommended that you regularly clean your shungite stone by washing it under warm running water for a few minutes and then leaving to dry in direct sunlight for at least six hours.
