Who We Are
First and foremost, we are a family business and we work in our business every day! Family is the most important part of our lives. We sell Shungite to enhance our family, your family and every family we can touch.
Our names are Laurice and Mark and this is our business! We established The Shungite Experience in 2013 when we personally found and experienced this 2 billion-year-old black rock called Shungite. We are a 100% Australian family-owned and run 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!
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 returning 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 firstly, we’ve travelled and met our wholesalers in Europe, secondly we are experienced enough to recognise genuine Shungite. This 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!
Our Future Plans
We have decided to join forces with another amazing person to , once again, introduce new and innovative Shungite products to the world market. Our partner is another Australian with a mission that matches ours and a commitment to quality and integrity that is hard to find in this World today. She is simply amazing and we are so grateful that we found her and are able to work with her. We are so excited to be able to do this so that you, our customers, can enjoy even more amazing benefits while using Shungite in various ways. Manufacturing is a whole new ball game and it has taken over 2 years and a lot of ideas, mistakes and frustration but we are almost there. We hoped to introduce these products in 2021 but Covid prevented that so fingers crossed 2022 will be the year for us!
The Environment and our commitment.
We are grounded in firm beliefs of healing through nature and we are committed to sustaining our ethos “do no harm”.
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. You can visit one of our suppliers – here
Our Shungite Suppliers.
Our Shungite products are ethically sourced from one of our various suppliers located in Petrozavodsk the capital city of the Republic of Karelia, Russia, which stretches along the western shore of Lake Onega for some 27 kilometres. All our products are from the Zazhoginsky deposit and come certified as non-toxic. We guarantee our products as genuine and stand behind them. We travel to Europe regularly to meet our suppliers and to source new and innovative products to share with you. We have chosen only suppliers who provide consistently high-quality products. However we don’t stop there, each shipment is inspected and tested so that it meets our quality standard. We’ve met and talked with our Suppliers, built relationships with them over the past 8 years, and trust them implicitly. They have been fantastic so far! We guarantee all of our Shungite is genuine and 100% authentic. Feel free to ask any questions and we will endeavour to answer them for you. We hope you love our Shungite as much as we do! We are a small family business and we try to make it easy for you to get in contact with us, just call 0422 989 228 and you can talk directly to one of the owners of the business ( during business hours please)! If we don’t answer immediately we may be talking with other customers or packing your orders but we will return your call as soon as possible. You can also send an email to – email@example.com – and we will reply asap!
Why Shungite is so unique.
Shungite is a remarkable mineral that formed around 2 billion years ago from living single-cell organisms. Shungite is unique because it is the only mineral that contains naturally occurring Fullerenes. Shungite is also unique in that it contains almost all elements of the Periodic Table.
