Updated and revised with added Crystals for 2023!

Below, you will find some ideas and interpretations of Shungite and its metaphysical meanings that we have found to be true for us. We are sharing what we have found to be true in the hope that it can benefit you in exploring the world of Shungite.

General meanings :

Of all the crystals we have worked with, Shungite has the greatest potential to interact with the human bio-energetic field. As always, you must be open and allow the connection at all times, but when you are, Shungite will readily converse with your body.

Sitting with Shungite, feeling into it and allowing the natural interaction between you and the stone will lead you to feeling safe and like you have returned home. There always seems to be a grounding energy associated with this unique stone. When you allow it, Shungite aligns with where you are and brings balance and harmony to your situation. A vast amount is written about Shungite’s cleansing and purification abilities on the physical level, which we think can also be true metaphysically. Because Shungite dispels negativity, we feel lighter and more optimistic when using it. Placing Shungite near the heart has a beautiful, soothing effect at times when you might be stressed. When you are relaxed, it can tend to make you feel a subtle sense of excitement, leading you to a brighter outlook. The above makes sense since the heart generates the strongest Electric field of any body part, and Shungite will interact with this noticeably.

We know that Shungite works well to harmonize EMF emissions so both in your emotional and physical body, you can experience benefits. We have much Shungite in our home, and while we are far from perfect and still experience many ups and downs, we seem to be protected and guided to return to the Truth.

There is, of course, absolute truth, and then there is our truth, which we perceive to be true at the time but later turn out to be “fixed ideas”. Shungite can sometimes seem to support fixed ideas as truth, but what is happening is we are being offered an opportunity to find the awareness that is needed to move past these fixed ideas.

Shungite and other crystals :

Shungite seems to work in harmony with many other crystals, mostly because it brings us back to a natural state of well-being, which allows more good to occur. We haven’t encountered any difficulties when combining Shungite and many other crystals as a part of any meditation we do. Below are our experiences when we work together with these combinations.

Shungite and Opal:Opal

This is a wonderful stone for opening and maintaining the lines of communication, so when combined with Shungite, it will help us to speak our Truth. Opal is most known for its ability to bring one’s traits and characteristics to the surface for examination and transformation. Just as Opal absorbs and reflects light, it picks up thoughts and feelings, desires and buried emotions, amplifying them and returning them to the source. While magnifying one’s negative attributes may be uncomfortable, it allows for understanding how destructive these emotions can be and assists in letting them go. Opal also illuminates the positive actions and emotions of the self, enhancing the good and true and fostering one’s highest potential. It is a karmic stone with a reminder that what one sends out will return. [Melody, 452-453][Simmons, 292][Hall, 209][Hall En, 254]
