From deflecting negativity to shielding the human aura, Shungite has a myriad of cleansing and healing properties in all realms. In 1996 a Nobel prize was awarded for research on the Fullerenes (a powerful antioxidant) in Shungite. It is a carbon rich stone and thus often used to purify water and as a shield from electromagnetic radiation from cell phones & electronics. Overall, Shungite is a powerful antidote to stress and fatigue, having a positive effect on the immune system, emotions and mind. Ideal to tape onto a cell phone or wear as jewelry, close to the body.
