Shungite is a power gemstone that is only found in the village of Shun'ga in Russia. Formed from oil deposits from the Paleoproterozoic age, it is the world's oldest known hydrocarbon-based stone and has been proven to have anti-bacterial properties through modern testing. Shungite healing properties are known to be powerful for the spirit as well. It can be used to combat insomnia, boost energy, reduce stress, and relieve anxiety. Because it is a black colored crystal, it also symbolizes protection from negativity. The fullerenes/carbons in Shungite neutralize EMF radiation so many people place it near their cell phones, laptops and other electronic devices.
