So, we have been asked this question many times over the years….Why does my Elite Shungite have rust on its surface?
Well, firstly, it is not rust as some people are claiming! It is actually called Jarosite.
I thought I would clear up this misinformation as it seems to be circulating around some other Shungite supplier’s websites. Below is an example that really worries me as it simply is not true!
“What is rust? Pretty simply, rust is oxidation of a material. In this case, due to the high amount of iron ore found in the soils in Karelia the rust is due to the iron ore oxidation from the soil lying adjacent to the Shungite. The Shungite is not rusting, it is the material on it or near it. Typically, the rust forms into material that is a yellow/orange colour.”
So as far as we have learned, from many reliable sources, the rust-like flakes that are Ocre-coloured and are sometimes present on Elite Shungite are a basic sulfate of Iron formed from the oxidation of Pyrite. It is from the Pyrite, not the soil that the Jarosite is formed. As you may be aware all Shungite can have veins of Pyrite running through it because Pyrite was present in the same area where the Shungite formed. When Pyrite is exposed to air it then oxidises. You can see the Pyrite veins running through all of the 3 types of Shungite. It is only when the Pyrite is exposed to air that it becomes Jarosite or oxidized Pyrite.
When we send out your larger pieces of Elite Shungite we carefully take off as much Jarosite as we can without damaging the Elite. Some people ask for the Jarosite to be left on as it is a naturally occurring part of Shungite. It is harmless but sometimes worries people as they think it is dirt or some other pollutant.
When you see these flakes of Jarosite it is actually showing you that the Elite Shungite is authentic! There is no way to “fake” these as they can only occur naturally so if you see them in your Elite Shungite you have another way to authenticate it!
Hope this helps to clear up your questions on those little flakes of Jarosite!
We have written this information many times but since there are some other websites out there telling people that Shungite needs to be cleansed we felt the need to say it again!.
For instance, the following was seen on a large Shungite store’s website –
“‘ Shungite basically acts as a sponge in its crystal cleaning and protection processes. Thanks to its unique atomic structure, called “fullerenes”, shungite is able to absorb a vast amount of negative elements. “‘ and also this …..'”But as we mentioned above, in doing so, negative energy and harmful elements get trapped inside shungite, which can be harmful to its user. “‘
We are really dismayed that this misinformation is being spread by larger companies and are not sure why they would be doing it. Scientifically this is incorrect. Shungite is a Diamagnetic stone and therefore other magnetic fields are repelled by it- this is one of the ways it helps with EMFs. Fullerenes do not suck up negative energy.
Shungite is one of only a few stones that doesn’t need to be cleansed or cleaned in any way. ( There are others such as Amethyst that are the same.) This is because it doesn’t take on any negative energies. The way Shungite works is by harmonizing around itself, therefore it never becomes overwhelmed, etc by any negativity!
Shungite Pyramids, Spheres, and Cubes and Eggs.
Below you will find some updated and general information about the 4 most common shapes that Shungite (type 2) can be carved into. Both polished and unpolished, they have the ability to harmonise and balance dangerous frequencies from EMF radiation into a safer more bio-compatible energy for the human body.
You may notice that your pyramid/sphere/cube is not perfect. That is because it is handmade. All stones and Crystals are unique and no two will look identical. Shungite may also have pyrite in it and less frequently quartz, which is naturally occurring.
EMF (“Electromagnetic Field”) radiation is created from all electronic devices, including mobile phones, laptops, wi-fi routers, tablets and smart meters in our homes.
In her book Regina Martino states…..” we apply the protective influence to the harmful source and this corrects and transforms the electromagnetic waves into biocompatible emanations. In the case of pulsed electromagnetic waves ( Wi-Fi, cordless phones, and cell phones) the corrected influence emanates with the same strength as the original, harmful source but in a biocompatible and positive way.” Shungite is believed to be able to do this because of its structure, in particular, the naturally occurring Fullerenes that it contains.
Pyramids are best placed in your working space or sometimes in the bedroom to contribute to your well-being. Generally, any places you spend a lot of time are a good place to put your pyramids. Pyramids should be placed so that they are oriented to the 4 cardinal directions North, South, East, and West. Place a Pyramid on your desk to reduce the EMF emitted from computers and other electrical devices. It is best to place them close and slightly lower to the devices generating the EMF.
Place a pyramid or Cube close to devices such as wi-fi routers, televisions, computers, and laptops, microwaves, and radios that are sources of EMF to neutralize any EMFs being emitted. Placing a Shungite pyramid in your office is said to increase your productivity and the productivity of your workmates close by. The pyramid creates a field around itself, which brings a positive change to moods within the office.
The fact that the pyramid has quickly become the most popular product made of Shungite is no coincidence. Since ancient times, the pyramids occupy an important position in the development of civilization. Because of its shape, the pyramid creates a torsion field around it, balancing harmful radiation.
Even one small Pyramid in a room can provide a peaceful, relaxing setting. Comments from customers who have used Shungite Pyramids in their workplaces say that workplace conflicts decrease and the workplace had become more harmonious.
The pyramid detailed below is the classic Giza pyramid shape from Egypt. We also stock “tall ” or Nubian shaped pyramids that have a much greater mass than the Giza shaped pyramids. It is suggested that the influence range of these Nubian shaped pyramids is about 1.5 times more than the Giza shaped pyramid.
Shungite Shape and Size (mm) Influence Range (approx.)
Pyramid 50mm 2.1-2.3 metres
Pyramid 60mm 2.5-2.7 metres
Pyramid 80mm 3.5-3.9 metres
Pyramid 100mm 5.0-5.4 metres
Our spheres are carved out of solid genuine Type 2 Shungite.
Spheres radiate energy in all directions simultaneously and can be placed in the middle of a room. As they emit a more uniform and harmonious release, they are ideal for living spaces and bedrooms, especially beside your bed. Shungite Spheres are a shape of balance and harmony. As the sphere is similar in shape to our vital field, they have a greater harmonising effect on our energetic body.
Shungite has fantastic grounding properties. Meditating with a Shungite sphere can help restore balance to your auric field by dispersing overactivity of the higher chakras while stimulating the lower ones.
Shungite Shape and Size (mm) Influence Range (approx.)
Sphere – 40mm 2.0 metres
Sphere – 50mm 2.7 metres
Sphere – 60mm 3.6 metres
Sphere – 80mm 6.6 metres
Sphere – 100mm 12.0 metres
Shungite Cubes are particularly known for their grounding abilities. Placing a Shungite Cube in the corners of a room grounds the energy in that room. The Cubes work in unison with one another to neutralize stress, negative energy, and emotions, creating a space with positive energy and shielding the space with its protective abilities. Cubes are wonderful to place in your home, office, sacred space, or any environment you spend a lot of time in. They even look great as an architectural piece on their own.
An egg stands for rebirth and can be used in meditation for breaking old habits so you can form new healthier ones. Indeed it is a part of many cultures’ cosmology to believe the earth emerged from an egg-like shell. A Shungite egg can also be used to massage your hand or other parts of your body with muscle fatigue. Like its cousin, the sphere, it can be used for EMF protection in your living spaces due to the gentle nature that harmonises the space around it.
Shungite Shape and Size (mm) Influence Range (approx.)
Egg – 40mm 2.0 metres
Egg– 50mm 2.7 metres
Egg – 60mm 3.6 metres
Egg – 80mm 6.6 metres
Egg– 100mm 12.0 metres
All ranges are based on the objects being placed in a “neutral” area. If the Shungite is placed in an area of disturbance the emanation will be reduced slightly. These tables are from the book “Shungite: Protection, Healing, and Detoxification” by Regina Martino.
We are happy to advise that we have found some amazing people in NSW who have their own Shungite Beehives! We have partnered with them to bring you Australian Raw Shungite Honey, direct from the Apiary! You won’t believe how good this honey tastes and the feedback from customers on its many benefits. Please pop over to the Shungite Honey page to try this amazing product for yourself!
Following is some background information from Greg and Leisa who own and run Fungi Gs Bees where all of our honey is supplied from. Also, an update on C70 Honey which will be coming soon ( Elite Powder is added to the hives ) Our next batch should be C70!!!
Fungi Gs Bees are located in Grafton which is in the Northern Rivers area of NSW. We are across the road from the Clarence River & ten minutes walk to the town centre. I have observed the practices of local apiary operations and gathered as much knowledge as possible to have a better understanding of the industry but more so to get a better understanding of the bees needs.
As many of you know there are a lot of problems for the bees from pesticides, diseases etc, and the beekeeper is the biggest pest of the bunch! The process of harvesting is disruptive, deadly and just brutal, killing bees. The removal of frames is comparable to pulling your house apart. The next step of getting the honey from the frames is a messy job and has a lot of contamination risks, then there is the spinning process to get the honey out of the frames, this promotes oxidation of the honey and changes its taste & texture. The honey must be heated & filtered this all results in inferior honey which I want nothing to do with. In comes the flow hive, if you don’t know it’s an Aussie invention and it’s turnkey honey, no need for a centrifuge or the other machinery so this is the best option. The quality of the honey can be compared to “ Combe Honey “ it has minimal contact with the air and needs no heating to remove it from the frame. Honey from each frame can have completely different flavour profiles just like wine. We do not filter our honey or tamper with it in any way, “from bee to jar”. We don’t feed our bees, except for empty honey jars, these are put out in front of the hive & the bees clean them up, they love it! It’s only fair as it’s their honey that we giving back to them.
So when it comes to looking after the bees there isn’t much you can do bar kill the odd hive beetle or destroyed an infected hive. My research has lead me to introduce wood chips which promote mushrooms to grow near the hive. Once the root system of the mushroom takes hold this is called mycelium. Mycelium has the capability to degrade all types of organic matter, materials from hardwoods, rock and even crude oils. It converts all this into liquid foods-sugars this also has antifungal, antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties. The bees remove the top layer of wood chips and drink from the mycelium root system this makes our bees supper healthy living twice as long as normal bees. This has other benefits such as – when bees are healthy pests and disease are no longer prevalent. We don’t interfere with our queens, we have no interest in bothering them, there is no need, the bees have their own methods. We do have about five swarms a year that fly off to repopulate the local area, so there is no interference from us.
On the property we have the following trees: 3 mango – 2 Turpin, 1 lemon scented, 2 trees are 35 feet 1 is 50 feet & all are within meters of the hive; lychee; mandarin; macadamia; peach; nectarine; orange; pawpaw; mulberry; Choko; cherry tomatoes; other seasonal vegetables & herbs. In the past, I would cut the grass as low as possible and whipper snipper to the dirt. In essence I was removing the water holding layer making it prone to drying out & reducing fruit production, not that we harvest that much for ourselves, some beneficiaries of produce are the Indian temple at Woolgoolga, our friends, anyone who asks politely, our two pet pigs, the water dragons, possums, every species of parrot, finches, birds & more in our area. The Chokos are also distributed to a bunch of lovely grannies for pickling, the bees love the Choko flowers too! Other benefits are the wild plant life better known as weeds, the bees give them a lot of attention so I don’t touch them anymore, it doesn’t look the best but I believe it’s the best thing to do for the bees and the plant life.
Being in town there are no commercial farmlands in reach of our bees and no heavy industry. We do have access to all the flowers & trees in neighbouring yards and trees lining the streets as well as the Clarence River natives, being across the road, this gives the benefit of not only harvesting all year round but complex tastes and floral bouquets unique to our honey that can’t be reproduced, even from one harvest to the next.
Now comes the Shungite, I wanted to produce an extra health benefit from our honey that would set us apart, but moreover another line of defence for the health of our bees. At first, I tried larger pieces of Shungite and determined that the powder was more applicable. To my surprise, I then noticed that the bees were enjoying the Shungite and taking it in the hive! I do this on average every 3 days and have noticed an increase in bee population & harvests. The latest winter harvest from empty was four weeks and two days- this is not only a record for us but a record in general!
I would like to share some good news for the supporters of our honey, we have just received our second flow hive, so production should be doubled for the next harvest. When we reach four units we can introduce a larger jar for all you honey addicts out there! The more honey we sell the more flow hives we will purchase, this means supplies will never run out and larger quantities will be available.
In the near future, we will be testing our honey for confirmation of its medicinal properties and also the c70 molecule. A percentage of all sales are devoted to testing and developing other techs to improve the life and health of our bees. We plan to have our own water vortex, magnetising Shungite structuring device with ozone processing, this will be for the bees to drink and also to atomise above the hives. This will ensure the health of our bees and give them the purest source of water on the planet, so enjoy our honey, you will find it hard to go without for both taste & your own well being.
PS We would love to see your response to tasting our honey with your friends or a comparison of your local honey. Please feel free to give us your flavour profile on any honey that you purchase, your feedback is invaluable! We want to see what you taste, so send videos to the Team at The Shungite Experience. You will get a present with your next order!
“ bee – have “ and “ bee – healthy “
Greg and Leisa from
Fungi G & The Bees
This is some info from a US-based business on Shungite Honey – You can find them at this address- Shungite Honey.com
ShungiteHoney.com is focused on raising treatment-free bees (no chemical treatments used), in an all-natural EMF & WiFi-free environment. Numerous studies have shown how harmful anEMF (Electromagnetic Field) or WiFi field can be for bees. Studies have also shown that Shungite can attenuate EMF signals & environmental radiation. Our Shungite beehives have Shungite powder mixed into their exterior paint, in addition to having Shungite nuggets placed at their entrance. Certain beehives are also given Shungite powder to walk through. When the bees walk through the Shungite powder it adheres to their legs, then is carried both inside the beehive (thus mixes w/honey stores) & outside where the bees harvest their nectar/pollen.
We have zero CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder) losses since introducing Shungite to the beehives, and no losses due to disease.
We believe in Treatment-free Beekeeping (no chemicals used on beehives)
No artificial feeding (we leave the bees more than enough honey so feeding isn’t necessary)
Shungite Honey is kept 100% Raw & Unfiltered to retain the honey’s natural beneficial qualities!
Beehives are 30+ miles from commercial crops (to avoid pesticide contamination of honey)
What’s Shungite? Why use it on beehives?
Everything on Earth has a specific vibrational frequency. All humans, animals, plants & insects have a certain vibration field which has to be maintained at specific levels to remain healthy. Our frequency means the way in which molecules or atoms of all matter “spin” around one another, as can be seen under a high-powered microscope.
NASA has been using frequency generators for decades to protect astronauts while they’re away from the Earth’s natural frequency source. Astronauts physical condition deteriorated while in outer space, away from the Schumann Resonance (Earth’s frequency) and while being in the presence of the strong magnetic fields of the space shuttles. This problem was solved by introducing the “Schumann Simulator” into all space shuttles, a magnetic pulse generator broadcasting the Earth’s natural frequency.
Unfortunately, today’s technologies, such as computer monitors, laptops, tv’s, radios, microwave ovens, Wi-Fi routers, smart meters & cell-phones all use electromagnetic waves in order to function.
These frequencies are extremely harmful to our natural vibrations as well as the bees vibrations. When the bees vibration field or frequency is disharmonious, their meridian clocks are disturbed, immunity is compromised, natural recovery and rejuvenation abilities are reduced & overall wellness can drop. This, in turn, makes the bees more susceptible to diseases & pests.

Many people go to great lengths to clean their home, their clothes and themselves, yet forget to cleanse their Crystals! Once you learn about the different methods you can use to clean your stones, you can do it on a regular basis to keep them full of positive energy.
Cleansing with Shungite
When we are talking about Shungite, it never needs cleansing as it doesn’t take on any negative energy. Shungite has the wonderful ability to harmonise the energy it comes into contact with or just the space it sits in, therefore it can’t take on anything negative. Just another amazing attribute of this ancient crystal! You can also cleanse and balance other crystals by placing them on or near a piece of Shungite! We have many of our Crystal Spheres that are placed on Shungite Stands which helps them to stay clean and balanced. We also put some of our other smaller Crystals on these stands just to cleanse them, it’s an easy way to keep your special Crystals harmonised.
There are various methods that you can use to cleanse your other Crystals some of which we have listed below. Experiment with different methods to see what feels right for you!
Smudging with Sage
Cleansing crystals by smudging them are easy. So how do you smudge crystals? The most potent smudge to use is white sage.
It is possible to buy smudge sticks ready-made in a smudging stick, or you can use loose sage leaf.
It is easy to buy in most places, and the smudge sticks are made up of either white sage alone or mixed with lavender.
Some may have other fragrant herbs in them as well, and some of these may also have healing attributes that could benefit you. Sage smoke is powerful to cleanse both your stones and the environment where they live.
You can do this one of two ways. You can hold the stones close to the stream of the smoke, or simply hold your smudge stick near to where they are sitting so the air around them is full of the sage essence.
Crystal Singing Bowls
There are two ways to do this. If the stones are small you may put them into the crystal singing bowl.
For bigger items, place them close to the bowl, then play the bowl for a few minutes. Crystal bowl music is very powerful and the sounds emitted by the bowl will resonate throughout the room, each bowl has a different note and vibration which will add to the cleansing of your Crystals. As the strong vibration of the pure crystalline sound of your crystal singing bowl fills the crystals, it will drive out any negative energy.The sound will lift the vibration of any of your crystals that are close by, and the room will also be filled with good vibrations as well. This is one of our favourite methods for cleansing larger crystals, especially ones that can’t be placed on our Shungite!
Suitable crystals can be left to soak in seawater or water mixed with sea salt. Cooking salt can also be used if sea salt/water is not available. You should fill a glass bowl (not metal) about half to one-third full and place your crystals so they are fully submerged in the salt water for anywhere between 1 to 24 hours. Many people leave them in salt water overnight but a crystal that needs a much deeper and more thorough cleansing can be left for up to 1 week. You should thoroughly rinse your crystals in cool running water after spending time in salt water to remove any remaining salt. After use, the salt water must be flushed away and never re-used because it will have absorbed negative and unwanted energies. Saltwater cleansing is considered one of the best and most thorough ways to cleanse crystals, but please be aware that this method must be avoided for certain crystals as it can have an adverse effect on them and even change their appearance and properties! Stones that should not be soaked in salt water include crystals that are porous, contain metal or have a water content, for example, Opal. Stones and minerals that should be kept away from salt include Pyrite, Lapis Lazuli, Opal, Hematite, etc.
Crystal Druse Geode or Cluster
All crystals can be cleansed safely by placing them inside an Amethyst Geode Cave overnight or for 24-48 hours. An Amethyst Druse, Cluster, or Bed can also be used in the same way. A Clear Quartz Geode, Bed or Cluster provides a faster cleansing process than Amethyst, but both methods are equally as effective. Simply place no more than a few crystals onto the crystal points and leave for anything up to 24-48 hours. These crystal cluster formations (both Amethyst and Quartz) have the ability to absorb the energies contained within crystals, neutralise the energies and then release ‘good’ energy from the cluster back into the crystals being cleansed, so they can effectively cleanse and energise at the same time.
Sunlight or Moonlight
The natural energies transmitted by the Sun and Moon can also energise your crystals with natural energies. Many people like to leave their newly cleansed stones under Moonlight and Sunlight for a day or two to allow them to absorb the different energies from the Moon and Sun. The Sun provides a stronger energy, whereas the Moon has a more gentle energy. When leaving crystals in Sunlight, please be aware that some coloured stones may fade over a period of time if left in strong sunlight too often. This can happen with Amethyst, for example. In this case, try not to leave your crystals in strong sun for more than an hour or so. To be on the safe side, place in sunlight during sunrise and/or sunset because the sun’s rays won’t be as strong during these times of the day.
We hope this is helpful and that you find what feels right for you and your Crystals!
As always, if we can help in any way please let us know.

There are three main shapes that Shungite is made into, with a few extra variations as well! The most common are Pyramids, Spheres and Cubes. You can also find Eggs, Harmonizers, Tiles, Stands and Massage Wands. All of these shapes are made from Type 2 Shungite which is easily polished and has a beautiful lustre when finished. This blog will give you an idea of the various uses of each shape.
The Shapes and their Characteristics
Shungite Pyramids are one of the 3 shapes that can be used in a variety of ways. Pyramids emit a strong energy vibration which will carry it’s influenced longer distances. It is because of its shape that this happens. Their influence ranges from 2.1 – 2.3 metres for a 5 cm Pyramid up to 5.5 metres for a large 10cm Pyramid.
Shungite Spheres emit a gentle and more uniform energy field which is perfect for places like your bedroom or living areas. Small spheres are often used as Harmonizers for meditation also. Spheres emit their beautiful energy for a radius of around 3.4 metres for a 6cm sphere.
Cubes are often used in areas that need grounding, such as Pole Homes or homes on steep hills. They are solid and very connected to the Earth and so help to ground your home if needed. Their vibration is carried a shorter distance than both the Sphere or Pyramid but they are still wonderful tools. They are especially good for using on your WIFI router to help lessen the effects of harmful EMF’s.
Shungite Eggs are also a beautiful energy that is perfect for general harmonising of rooms such as bedrooms etc. They are said to help us connect to the Life Force around us.
These harmonizers are generally used as aids in meditation. They have been used as far back as The Egyptian times. These come as one Shungite Cylinder matched with a variety of different crystals, most commonly Soapstone but you can also find them in Selenite, Jade and Amethyst.
Shungite Tiles are either square or oblong and are great to use to help for a variety of things from EMF protection to helping to keep your fruit/veg fresher for longer in your fridge. We even use one in our cars to help with EMF emissions. They are a very versatile shape.
Since Shungite never needs to be cleaned and doesn’t take on any negativity, using a Shungite stand for your Crystals is a brilliant way to keep them clean and balanced. You can simply place them on the stand for a period of time or use it permanently, it’s up to you.
Shungite massage wands are used by therapists in their practices to help with either Energetic work or bodywork. Once again, the balancing effects of Shungite can greatly enhance their work. As Shungite does not need cleansing this is also beneficial.
Different Uses for different shapes
We use a small cube to help harmonise EMF’s emitting from our router. We determined where the internal antennae were and then place the cube in front of it. By testing with an EMF detector we saw a huge difference in the emissions. This happens without any loss of WIFI network usability.
Electrical Meter Boxes
Another area of your home that can have EMF emissions quite strongly. You can place either a pyramid or a cube inside the box to help harmonise this area.
Cordless phones emit a very high EMF pollution. Shungite can be very effective in balancing this. The base that your phone sits on is the worst area and so a Shungite Tile is perfect to use. Simple place your stand and phone on a tile to harmonise the emissions.
Shungite shapes are a versatile and very useful tool to have in your home. We have them placed in most rooms around our home and find them to be very effective in keeping the space harmonious.
We hope you have found this article useful and that you can begin to use Shungite shapes to bring balance and harmony to your home.

Gemstones and Crystals
Never has there been such an exciting array of crystal jewellery available for sale. Earring, rings, bracelets and pendants – rounded cabochon’s, stones cut in the style of precious gems and probably the most popular, gems’ in their pure, unfinished state.
Crystal has never been more popular as jewellery but as well as the more fashionable uses, crystals have metaphysical properties which crystal healers believe can aid in everything from balancing and grounding, to channelling and healing. Some stones have singular abilities whereas others, such as clear quartz can be programmed for specific uses.
The style and settings of crystal jewellery are purely one of personal taste and do not affect the individual properties of each crystal – although some people believe that the raw stones, touching the skin affect the stones ability to work faster we do not necessarily believe this to be the case. Shungite balances the energy around the body so doesn’t need to be touching it to work its magic! Crystals work on a subtle vibration and those waves of energy will reach the close proximity of the physical body without too much trouble! The human body works with energy the same as electronic equipment might – we don’t question the use of quartz to help keep our watches working or as an important component of our computers!
Gemstones have been worn throughout the ages as talismans, signs of good luck, protective amulets and to mark those of nobility. You will find Gemstones in many ancient Royal Symbols and Crowns with most Royal Families from around the world using them from ancient times up to today. You will also see them in ancient pictures from Egyptian, Rome, Greece, Turkey, China, Russia as well as native American, Inca and Indian peoples. Gemstones and crystals have been used to adorn people for centuries and will continue to do so for many more to come!
Choosing the right piece
Most crystal experts will agree to general properties of each stone but ultimately, the wearer is the expert on their own jewellery. YOU are the best person to decide which crystal is right for YOU at any given time! Trust your instincts!
On our website, you will find many beautiful Shungite jewellery pieces as well as some amazing other stones. Wearing Shungite brings balance and harmony to you while other Crystals have their own meanings. The most common and loved of all crystal pendants are those made from quartz crystal. Clear quartz crystals are loved for their purity, simplicity and stunning natural growth formation. Rose Quartz, Smoky Quartz, purple and green Amethyst or Citrine (to name just a few) are also highly admired. Quartz crystal is considered to be a universal stone that brings great vibrational power to the wearer. Some properties and uses associated with quartz crystal include the following: aid in meditation, balance, amplification of positive energy and muting of negative energy, cleansing the aura and bringing harmony. To find out more about metaphysical and healing properties of crystals and gemstones, click here. Other types of crystals used to make jewellery include, but are not limited to Pyrite, Malachite, Shungite, Topaz, Carnelian, Pearl, Turquoise, Kyanite, Morganite, Moldavite and too many more to name! These are all used to make stunning jewellery and each has their own special properties to aid you on your journey. There is no doubt that crystal pendants are easiest to wear no matter which type of crystal or gem is set into it. Wearing crystal jewellery also brings the crystal or gemstone close to our heart area which some people believe is most beneficial to the person. Wearing crystal and gemstone jewellery is very useful for bringing the spiritual and physical benefits of crystals into your life, in a practical way. Apart from the many benefits of Crystals, the number one reason most people choose them is that they are exquisite! You can have multiple pieces to go with all of your outfits and moods, in such a huge array of colours and designs that you will never run out of choices!
We are always looking for beautiful pieces to showcase on our Website. We deal with wonderful suppliers that use Fair Trade practices which are in line with our own values and goals.

Shungite powder has many and varied uses. These range from health and beauty to agriculture and construction. In this article, we will focus on exactly what Shungite powder is, and how we and many others including scientists and doctors have used this wonderful product. We will share theirs and our own outcomes and keep things honest, providing any drawbacks we have run into.
Shungite powder is typically made with special equipment from fragments of Shungite rock. It usually comes as a powder 1 to 3 microns. It can also be made from Elite Shungite (which is rarer and so more expensive).
