Mineralogy: Shungite is a black, lustrous, non-crystalline mineraloid consisting of more than 98 weight percent of carbon. It was first described as coming from a deposit near Shunga village, in Karelia, Russia, from whence it gets its name.
Metaphysical: Shungite is said to provide EMF and psychic force protection. It's also used as a natural "filter" for detoxification and purification. In fact, in Russia shungite has been used for water purification for centuries!
