Healing Crystal Handbook: Shungite

Healing Crystal Handbook: Shungite

Do you know shungite contains up to 98% carbon? It is one of the only stones with the highest vibrations that it can bond with human beings quickly. Popular as shungite and shun’ga stone, the black crystal is very soft with MOHS hardness of 2 to 3. Depending on the type of shungite, your experience can be different. This grounding stone has a long line of history and metaphysical properties in addition to astrological powers that I will describe today.

Basically, shungite is a grounding stone with superb effects of purification. It can detox the water to cleanse out the chemicals as well as your aura and spirit from evil energies. The anti-bacterial and anti-fungal property of shungite helps to cleanse objects too. Popular as a miracle stone, shungite can heal a range of physical disorders too. When used daily, it purifies the aura with bright light to cleanse out the clogs in your chakra points so that healing energy of the gemstone activates the chakras quickly.

One of the rarest stones with fullerenes (special carbon molecules that have extraordinary anti-oxidant qualities) shungite was used to directly clean water by the Russian army for ages! It’s a mystery stone that works well with physical and spiritual realms, equally. The most interesting fact about shungite is that it was used for medical uses even before the 18th century due to its infamous anti-bacterial properties.

What is the Shungite Meaning?

Shungite Gemstone Beads

A gemstone that looks like coal, the name shungite is derived from the village it was discovered first. Named after Shunga in Karelia in Russia, shungite does not mean anything other than the word ‘so’ in Uzbek. Although, the word shunga in Japanese means the picture of spring or love.

Archaeologists have finally dated shungite to be almost 2 billion years old. In simple terms, shungite can tell us more about the earth than any mammal can. Perhaps that’s why, when I touched a shungite in India at least 10 years ago, it showed me an unrealistic picture of Kerala (my native home) that was flourishing with flora and fauna. Today, it is a flood-stricken place on the verge of extinction due to natural calamities.

To me, shungite means cleansing and purification. In fact, I always recommend shungite in my health rituals with crystals so that it adds an extra ounce of spirit power to the mix. Better safe than sorry, right?

Origin of Shungite

Mainly, shungite is found in the Karelia village of Russia, near Lake Onega. Another place where shungite originates in Russia is Vozhmozero in Zazhoginskoye. A small deposit is also reported in Russia from Kamchatka (present in lava rocks) around Chelyabinsk coal mine.

While many people think there are no other occurrences of shungite in the world, facts say otherwise. This beautiful black grounding crystal is found in India, Kazakhstan, Austria and Democratic Republic of Congo.

Which is the Shungite Chakra (s)

Many crystal users advocate shungite heals the root chakra, the truth is that it heals all the chakras. It can be felt because chakra flow after using a shungite is ecstatic.

That being said, YES, shungite is a root chakra stone. It makes you safe by protecting you. Shungite powers the root chakra and flushes into all the chakras to rejuvenate your aura to make a powerful new seal around you. This is done by entering all the other chakras.

Most people ask me, what’s the second most powerful chakra you can activate with a shungite. I tell them ‘heart chakra’. Yes, although it is difficult to believe a heart and base chakra stone, shungite is the exception. Once connected to the base, shungite will stabilize you, powering your heart chakra to enter your blood vessels and thereby it enters the rest of the chakras.

Zodiac Signs Associated with Shungite

Do you know shungite was the earliest crystal used against health and spiritual disorders? To crystal users, Shungite and cancer are synonymous. So, it goes without saying that shungite empowers Cancer of all the zodiac.

People born under the zodiac sign cancer have a date of birth from June 21 to July 22. They are moody and pessimistic and a little bit insecure and a whole lot possessive. But, if you’re a Cancerian, you are known for your strengths than weaknesses.

You are environmentally conscious, social, very inspiring, empathetic and down to earth in everything you do. The truth is, sometimes your weaknesses take over the goods. But with a shungite, your life can be full of optimism that actually becomes the reality.

Ruling Planet or Celestial Bodies of Shungite

Empowered by fire and ruled by Mercury, Shungite or Shunkit faces its challenges and healing properties with the help of the powers of Mercury. Depending on your aura and karma values, shungite can affect you positively or negatively. This is because when your actions displease Lord Mercury, it can cause chaos.

When you use shungite for evil purposes, it can make you selfish. On the other hand, if you do a good deed while holding shungite it will make you wiser and enlightened. Astrologically, drinking alcohol and eating eggs is a big no-no when wearing or bonding with shungite. You can also boost the good effects of shungite by wearing sterling silver with or keeping the shungite in the north direction.

What are Shungite Color energies

Shungite Tumbled Stone

There are not as many varieties of shungites as much as opal or agate. They are exclusive and extraordinary. Finding differences by inclusions is a bit tough as the stone is opaque, to the naked eye. But, it is possible to differentiate shungite by the place of origin based on inclusions within the stone.

Based on the carbon present in the stone, there are up to five forms of shungite. Shungite 1 as it is named has 98% carbon while Shungite 2 has 35-80% carbon, Shungite 3 has 20 to 35% carbon while Shungite 4 has 10-20% carbon. Shungite 5 has less than 10% carbon.

How to Clean a Shungite?

Tigers Eye Shungite Bracelet

Shungite itself is a lightweight cleansing stone. It can purify water to your soul in a matter of hours. However, as shungite cleanses by absorbing the dirt to pollutants and negativity itself, it can

There are two ways to clean the black stone of healing called shungite.

  • Sunlight
  • Take your shungite and place it in the open.
  • Let it soak in the sunlight for 1-2 hours.
  • Your shungite stone is physically clean.
  • Water
  • Place the shungite in warm or simmering water for 5 minutes.
  • Take the stone out and scrub it with a soft bristle brush.
  • Let it run under cold running water for 2 minutes.
  • Place it out in the sunlight or wrap it in a cotton towel.
  • Baking Soda
  • Take a bowl of water.
  • Put one teaspoon of baking soda.
  • When it starts to fizz, place your shungite inside.
  • Place it under cold running water for 1 minute.
  • Air dry it under the sun or pat dry it with a cotton cloth.

How to Make Shungite Water

First, let’s find out how exactly does shungite clean water. You already know the Russian troops made clean water directly made from shungite for years, right.

What happens when you place a shungite in water is that the fullerenes in the stone decontaminate the pollutants in the water. What I mean to say is, if your water has bacteria, dirt, chemicals, nitrates, and chlorine, it will attract these things to remove it from the water. That’s why shungite must be cleaned well after you use it to clean water because it has absorbed all the pollutants too.

Now, let’s see how exactly do we use this black stone to actually clean the water.

  • Clean your shungite by soaking it in warm water for one hour.
  • Take a bowl of tap water.
  • Place your shungite in the water.
  • Leave the shungite in water for up to 10 hours at a minimum and 72 hours as a maximum.

If you see any kind of residue on the stone, understand that direct infusion to make a shungite water elixir is not good. Instead, just put the shungite on top of the glass of water on a slab of paper, cardboard or plate. Once you create an affirmation elixir, the magic will start work and you will have an elixir in 10-72 hours (for physical cleansing) and 2 minutes to 2 hours (for spiritual cleansing)!

Metaphysical Shungite Properties
