The crystal Shungite and its higher quality, Elite Shungite are found in Karelia, Russia. This powerful crystal is known for more than just its spiritual and physical protective, cleansing and purification properties. (Elite) Shungite has recently gained more popularity due to its incredible ability to protect against Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF), especially those produced by 5G towers. Shungite can be placed nearby, worn on the body or used to create gem water/crystal elixirs.
(Elite) Shungite has a score of 3.5 to 4 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. This makes (Elite) Shungite a relatively soft crystal that scratches and breaks. Due to its high carbon content, Shungite bleads black the first few times it comes in contact with water (like sweat). This discharge can be washed off with water and soap.
