About us

Our Mission

Hi, our names are Laurice and Mark and this is our business! We established The Shungite Experience in 2013 when we found and experienced Shungite. We are a 100% Australian family-owned and run small business . Our mission is to make high-quality Karelian Shungite more easily available to the Australian public. We have been importing Shungite for over 8 years. We only buy genuine Shungite from The Zazhoginsky deposit in Russia. We see our business as a conduit, connecting Shungite and you. We are always looking to enhance our knowledge base so that we can pass more information onto you and help spread this to the wider community. We believe that Shungite has amazing qualities to help the planet and its people grow and enjoy optimal well-being!

Owners picture

We are passionate about connecting our customers with authentic, genuine Shungite products. We value you, as our customer, and make customer service our highest priority! We want to make sure your experience with us is happy and satisfying. Some of our customers have advised us that they were very unsure about buying Shungite online, as they were not sure about its authenticity. In our online shop, we try to be as transparent as possible, describing the items in detail and giving dimensions and weights (where possible) so that as a new customer or retuning loyal customer, you can be assured that what you are purchasing is in fact authentic and accurate. We also have detailed in our information section the best way for you to test your Shungite to ensure that it is genuine.

We know we are sourcing authentic products because we’ve traveled and met our wholesalers, that is why we offer a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if you can prove that our Shungite is not authentic! So far no one has had any trouble with our products and we don’t envisage that happening in the future! We have spent many, many years finding the best products we can source from both Russia and other European countries with the sole purpose of making Shungite much easier for Australian customers to purchase. We have super fast dispatch times (the same day where possible ) and are able to be contacted through Australian email or phone. We are in your time zone so that it makes it easier for you to get your questions answered too!

The Environment and our commitments.

As an Eco-friendly business, we choose to use minimal packaging ( only enough to keep your orders safe and sound) which is biodegradable wherever possible, as well as recycling all our supply packing to ensure our environmental impact is kept at a minimum. We use recycled tape, paper,  foam,  packing bubbles (which are made from corn ), and anything else we can possibly use that is environmentally sound.Better Packaging
